Top Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different websites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Strong Sides

The most proper choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user markedly. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting vendor to another, supplying different amounts of web storage and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will offer the specs your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the site. We, at iMatrix ICT Group, offer a great collection of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a cheaper package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end package demands just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Specific web pages, particularly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For sites that demand root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it performs in absolutely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms usually include root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans involve different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to handle as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the stable work of a site. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
