Top Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Signs

The most appropriate option for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per individual seriously. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of data space and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will have the specs your web portal actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at CIS Hosting, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings

A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some web portals, especially online storefronts, require applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand full server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that require complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in precisely the same way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms normally include root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans sport diverse features depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account contains guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short spans of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by practiced users.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Selecting the top hosting package is important as it can affect the stable performance of a web page. Before opting for an account, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
