Top Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Advantages

The most relevant choice for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer critically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of server space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will provide the features your site actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Bester Host, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful plan takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Given web sites, particularly online shops, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually provide complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server accounts involve different functionalities based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual private hosting server package has guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Prior To Deciding...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a site. Prior to settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
