Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting services appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Website Hosting - Good Points
The most suitable choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per person markedly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will offer the specs your web portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at ComNetwork, offer an immense choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-price plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end package involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given online portals, chiefly web storefronts, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not require full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand full root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments usually offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages comprise different functionalities based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account offers guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short spells of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to tackle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete dedicated server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
