Top Shared Web Hosting
There are different types of shared web hosting plans suitable for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To pick the most proper shared web hosting service for your web portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Positive Points
The most adequate alternative for small websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per client significantly. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will have the features your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the site. We, at Easy Host Way, offer a vast array of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Given websites, mainly web stores, request applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not need full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in exactly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms traditionally come with root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans contain diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web server plan contains guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run dedicated hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
Before You Select...
