Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The best choice for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one company to another, offering different amounts of web space and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will include the resources your site actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the online portal. We, at ChStack, offer a wide selection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Specific online portals, chiefly online stores, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not demand server root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both platforms usually provide root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different features based on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to handle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given providers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
