Top Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Virtues
The most adequate alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a package that will provide the specifications your website really demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at HarryHost, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a basic package and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced package requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given web pages, above all online stores, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms commonly give full root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages sport different specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan includes guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to run as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they carry out hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
