Top Web Hosting
There are different varieties of web hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your website, you have to evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Perks
The most adequate choice for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per customer radically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one host to another, delivering different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will provide the specs your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at ZrainMedia Hosting, offer an enormous choice of web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A drawback of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Specific sites, particularly web stores, need applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software that does not require root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that request root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions usually come with root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual server plan offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the stable functioning of a online portal. Before selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, study carefully all the preconditions for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
