Top Shared Web Hosting

There are various types of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they demand. To pick the best shared web hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Benefits

The most proper option for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the features your site indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at eChromatics Web Solutions, offer a vast assortment of shared web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more features, upgrading to a better account requires just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Downsides

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some websites, mainly web stores, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software programs that do not need root-level access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that request server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions commonly include server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts contain different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting plan has guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief intervals of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by competent customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable operation of a online portal. Prior to settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the preconditions for the site to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
