Top Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

Shared Hosting - Assets

The most adequate option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will have the resources your online portal really demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Consultingforge Hosting Ltd., offer a huge selection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A weakness of the shared hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain web sites, above all web shops, require software applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software applications that do not demand root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both services commonly come with server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting packages involve different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting package offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper work of a site.
