Top Shared Web Hosting
There are different varieties of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Benefits
The best choice for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per user radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one host to another, offering different amounts of disk space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specifications your online portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Comxen, offer a wide assortment of shared web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific web pages, particularly online shops, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that need full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in strictly the same way.
Both services normally provide root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting packages contain diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web server hosting package offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short periods of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manage as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
