Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you have to judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Web Hosting - Good Points
The most adequate alternative for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per customer seriously. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one company to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase an account that will include the resources your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Althanium MM, offer an immense choice of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific online portals, above all online shops, require applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not require full server root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that need full root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in a strictly identical way.
Both environments normally come with root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages include diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short periods of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to handle as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by qualified clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
