Top Shared Web Hosting
There are various kinds of shared web hosting services suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To pick the most relevant shared web hosting service for your website, you must judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Advantages
The most proper alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per client radically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a package that will provide the resources your online portal actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the site. We, at LiquidNet, offer a great assortment of shared web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a better plan demands just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain websites, chiefly web shops, need applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that request root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms typically give full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server accounts come with different specs depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual server plan has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief stretches of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
Prior To Deciding...
Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the stable performance of a web site. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the requirements for the online portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
