Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting services 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 web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The most relevant alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per client seriously. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will offer the specs your web page actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at BrentHost 'www.brenthost.com', offer a big selection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you demand more features, moving to a more advanced plan takes just a click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Some sites, particularly online storefronts, need applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Both solutions commonly include full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server accounts come with diverse features depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting account includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief periods of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
