Top Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you have to judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides

The most adequate option for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per user markedly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of data storage and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specifications your site actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at Wise Host Network, offer a vast choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better account requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Certain web pages, above all online storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not require complete root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that require full root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in exactly the same way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services generally come with root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages include different characteristics based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spans of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a site. Before selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the requirements for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
