Top Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting services suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your web page, you must access what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most appropriate alternative for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per user radically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will include the specs your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at Hosting PTC, offer a large array of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a basic account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better account involves just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Certain web pages, especially online storefronts, request applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not request root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that demand full server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it functions in a strictly identical manner.

VPS Servers

Both solutions commonly come with complete root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages sport different specs based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package contains guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short periods of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Deciding...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can affect the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the website to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
