Top Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting accounts suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your site, you must access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Dividends

The most appropriate option for small scale web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per user substantially. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will provide the resources your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the web portal. We, at ShifaHost, offer an immense collection of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-price plan and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some web pages, mainly web stores, demand software applications to be available on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not need complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it works in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions typically offer full server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts sport different specifications based on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS web server account includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spells of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Selecting the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the stable operation of a web page. Before settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
