Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Positive Sides
The most appropriate option for small scale online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of web storage space and bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a package that will have the resources your web portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Asia Pacific Hosting, offer a big selection of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful plan and you demand more features, moving to a better package requires only a click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Certain web portals, particularly web shops, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not request root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in exactly the same manner.
Both platforms normally come with root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans have different specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package has guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
