Top Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects
The best alternative for small scale online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per client critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of web storage space and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will offer the specifications your online portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at UTB Hosting, offer an enormous selection of web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a cheaper account and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful account involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A downside of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Given web sites, chiefly web storefronts, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that need full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Private Servers
Both solutions typically provide full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans involve diverse specs based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to cope with as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
