Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Dividends
The most suitable alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per person markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a plan that will have the resources your web page actually demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Domain Control Network, offer a great selection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low grade package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package demands only a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Points
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Specific sites, mainly web storefronts, demand applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software that does not require complete server root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that demand complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in an exactly identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments traditionally come with full server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans include diverse features depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web server hosting package has guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
