Best Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting services suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web page, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The most suitable option for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of web storage space and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the features your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the online portal. We, at Eastern Bytes, offer a great choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Weak Points
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific web portals, chiefly online stores, require applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand full root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an absolutely identical way.
Both environments normally provide root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages contain diverse specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account offers guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
