Top Hosting

There are different types of hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most proper alternative for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per person substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will offer the resources your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Sharplogics, offer a great selection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific web portals, particularly online shops, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that require complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in strictly the same way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services normally give complete root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting packages comprise diverse features depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the proper functioning of a website. Before selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
