Top Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting packages appropriate for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The best alternative for small scale web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer substantially. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web host to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will offer the specifications your web portal actually requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Num Host, offer a big assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-cost package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan requires only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain sites, above all online stores, require software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that require full root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both platforms commonly include root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts involve different functionalities based on what the hosting company offers. A virtual server web hosting plan includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short intervals of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Nonetheless, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
