Top Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you must calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Good Points

The best option for small sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per individual noticeably. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your site really needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Host54, offer an extensive variety of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you need more system resources, upgrading to a better package requires just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Downsides

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some sites, mainly online shops, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software applications that do not need complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally give full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans have different specifications based on what the hosting company offers. A virtual server web hosting plan has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare 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 revved up by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to tackle as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by skilled clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Opting...

Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable work of a online portal. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, appraise thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to work properly, especially if it is script-powered. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
