Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your website, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The most suitable choice for small websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per user drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of server storage and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will have the resources your web portal actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Agorahost, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful account requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Specific websites, particularly web stores, request applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install only software platforms that do not need full root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that request complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms generally come with full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans include diverse features depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server web hosting plan has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
