Top Web Hosting
There are different sorts of web hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most relevant web hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The best alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one host to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will offer the specifications your web site in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at MEGAHOST, offer an enormous array of web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a cheaper plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Certain web sites, mainly online shops, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not request full root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that demand full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it runs in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally provide full server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans come with different specs based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual web hosting server package includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
