Top Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting plans suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides

The best alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per person significantly. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will offer the features your site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web page. We, at Webpaz, offer a great array of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a cheaper account and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan requires only a click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given sites, mainly web shops, request applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not need complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that need complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions normally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts come with diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual private hosting server account contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
