Top Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Privileges
The best choice for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per customer drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of server storage and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the site. We, at PakCloudHost, offer a wide array of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A weak side of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given websites, especially web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand complete root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that demand full server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in absolutely the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services generally come with full root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server accounts include different specs depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private web hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spells of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, certain companies provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
