Top Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant web hosting service for your web site, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Positive Sides

The most adequate alternative for small scale web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will provide the resources your web page in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Sunset Host, offer an enormous array of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-price package and you need more resources, upgrading to a better plan involves just a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Downsides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Specific web portals, above all web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software that does not demand root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in precisely the same way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments typically provide full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages include diverse features based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server package has guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to manage as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Selecting...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a online portal. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
