Top Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Perquisites

The most appropriate alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specs your web page really requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Hosting All Star, offer a wide assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Specific online portals, above all online shops, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate solely software applications that do not need complete server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a strictly identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both services usually give full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans come with different specifications depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spans of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement web server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web portal. Prior to opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
