Top Web Hosting

There are various types of web hosting accounts suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Assets

The most adequate option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per individual significantly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one host to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will include the features your web site really needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Smart Purple Cloud, offer an immense variety of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you need more resources, moving to a better plan takes only a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Signs

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Certain web sites, particularly online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software that does not need complete server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that demand complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in exactly the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions traditionally include root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts comprise different characteristics depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web server hosting plan has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by competent customers.

Dedicated Servers

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

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the stable work of a web portal. Before choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, study carefully all the requirements for the web portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
