Top Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

Shared web hosting - Strong Sides

The most suitable option for small sized web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per individual considerably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will offer the resources your web portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the web site. We, at Business Web Hosts, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a cheaper package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given web sites, chiefly online storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete server root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that require complete server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both solutions usually offer server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts comprise diverse specs based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server account contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to run as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.

Before You Decide...
