Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Advantages
The most optimal alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per person drastically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, offering different quotas of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will have the features your website actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the site. We, at Grab Bag Hosting, offer an enormous choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific websites, especially web storefronts, require applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand complete server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in absolutely the same way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both services typically give root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting plans come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
