Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting services appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Perks
The most suitable option for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per customer significantly. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, offering different quotas of disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will include the specifications your online portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at Evostrix Web Hosting, offer a big collection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low grade plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain web portals, especially online stores, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not demand root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that require root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.
Both environments usually include root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short intervals of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
