Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The most suitable alternative for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per individual critically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will provide the specs your web portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the site. We, at Genius Monster Hosting, offer a vast variety of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-price account and you require more features, upgrading to a more powerful package involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Given websites, especially online storefronts, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not need root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For online portals that request 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 demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it functions in a precisely identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services usually come with root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS plan has guaranteed web storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
