Top Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Strong Points
The most proper option for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per customer markedly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of data space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will offer the resources your web site indeed demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web site. We, at Albury Hosting, offer a large array of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich package requires just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A disadvantage of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given web pages, particularly web stores, demand applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not demand root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that demand complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services normally include full server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server accounts involve different functionalities based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting package includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spells of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
