Top Web Hosting

There are various sorts of web hosting services suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To select the most proper web hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most appropriate alternative for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual markedly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of disk space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the web site. We, at SOS Web Development, offer a great collection of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced package demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given websites, chiefly online stores, require software applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand complete server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both services traditionally include full root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages include different features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual private web server hosting account has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short intervals of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
