Top Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the best shared hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Advantages
The most appropriate option for small sized web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person markedly. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of web storage and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will offer the features your web page really demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at The Edge of Eternity Networks, offer an immense assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-price account and you demand more system resources, moving to a high-end package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain web portals, particularly web shops, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that need complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in exactly the same way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both services commonly come with root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts involve diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server hosting package offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief stretches of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
