Top Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Privileges
The most relevant choice for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per user substantially. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage space and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will provide the specs your web site really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the web site. We, at GSPH.com, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced account involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some web pages, mainly online stores, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not require root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that require complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it runs in absolutely the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both environments typically provide root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts involve different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS server hosting plan contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
