Top Hosting

There are different varieties of hosting packages suitable for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Strong Points

The most relevant choice for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per user seriously. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a package that will have the features your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Name Is On, offer a wide collection of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-price account and you need more features, moving to a high-end plan takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some sites, mainly web storefronts, demand applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not need root-level access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that need complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it functions in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both services traditionally offer full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages comprise diverse specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Decide...
