Best Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Pluses
The most appropriate alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a package that will offer the features your web page really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Bottom Dollar Web Hosting, offer an immense variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan demands only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A weakness of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Specific web pages, above all online shops, demand applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not require full root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in exactly the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally come with full root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages contain diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a site. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
