Top Shared Web Hosting

There are various sorts of shared web hosting plans appropriate for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most optimal shared web hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Perquisites

The most adequate option for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one provider to another, providing different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a package that will offer the specifications your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web site. We, at EMax Web Hosting Services, offer a large assortment of shared web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business sites that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-price account and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful plan involves just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Weak Sides

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some web pages, mainly online storefronts, demand applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that require full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in precisely the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both environments normally come with root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server accounts contain diverse specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server web hosting package contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Before You Decide...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable performance of a site. Before choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
