Top Shared Web Hosting
There are various sorts of shared web hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To choose the most optimal shared web hosting service for your web portal, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Sides
The most adequate option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one company to another, offering different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specs your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the site. We, at DP Host, offer an immense collection of shared web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you require more functionalities, moving to a better package requires just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some sites, particularly web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require full root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that request complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Both solutions typically give server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages sport different specifications based on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting plan has guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to cope with as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, given hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
