Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The best option for small scale websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per client critically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will have the features your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web site. We, at cHostit, offer a wide selection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a less powerful package and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given online portals, above all web shops, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software that does not demand full root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that demand full root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both services generally provide server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans involve diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.
Nonetheless, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper work of a website. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the requirements for the online portal to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
