Top Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting plans appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the best web hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Web Hosting - Perks
The most suitable option for small sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per customer radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, delivering different amounts of data space and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get an account that will provide the specifications your web page really requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Santranico, offer an extensive variety of web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful plan takes just a click.
Shared Hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Given web sites, mainly web stores, require applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that request full root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in exactly the same way.
Both services normally come with server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts contain diverse features based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private hosting server plan offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
