Top Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Positive Points

The most optimal alternative for small scale sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual noticeably. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will provide the resources your web page in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Affordable Webhosting US, offer a great array of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced account requires only a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Certain web sites, particularly online storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software that does not request complete server root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both services normally provide full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server plans have different specs based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spells of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to handle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced users.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, given web hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a web site.
