Top Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Benefits

The most appropriate option for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per customer radically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of data space and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy an account that will provide the specifications your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the website. We, at EMax Web Hosting Services, offer an extensive collection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low grade package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain online portals, mainly web shops, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software that does not request root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that require root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in precisely the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly offer root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans comprise different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spells of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a website. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the requirements for the site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
