There are different kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Signs

The most appropriate option for small sized web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per client drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a package that will provide the resources your web site actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Bester Host, offer an immense choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost package and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account involves just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given web sites, especially online stores, request software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not request root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in precisely the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions generally give root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts have diverse specs based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS package includes guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short stretches of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Before You Elect...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper functioning of a web page. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
