Top Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Privileges
The most relevant option for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per client substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting vendor to another, providing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will include the features your online portal actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Host 23, offer a vast selection of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost account and you require more functionalities, moving to a high-end account demands just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Certain web sites, mainly web shops, demand software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full root-level access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it runs in absolutely the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments typically come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans have diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS server web hosting account contains guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spells of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
