Top Shared Web Hosting

There are different types of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant shared web hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, 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 Web Hosting - Strong Points

The most relevant option for small online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per customer noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get a package that will provide the features your web site really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the web portal. We, at cloud7, offer an immense collection of shared web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low priced plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Certain sites, mainly web shops, require applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that request complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

VPSs

Both platforms usually provide complete root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages come with diverse features based on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server account includes guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief stretches of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.

Before You Elect...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a site. Prior to picking a package, compare the pros and cons, review carefully all the requirements for the web portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
