Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting plans suitable for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Points
The most relevant choice for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per customer considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will include the specifications your web site really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Bottom Dollar Web Hosting, offer a huge choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you require more features, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Shortcomings
A negative side of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific web pages, mainly web storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it works in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally include root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages contain different features based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spans of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to manage as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by competent clients.
However, certain hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
