Top Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared Web Hosting - Perquisites

The best alternative for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per person significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will include the resources your online portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at 3Hostin, offer a huge variety of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Weaknesses

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Some web pages, especially web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that require root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in strictly the same way.

VPSs

Both solutions typically give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans sport diverse characteristics based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spans of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to cope with as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
