Top Website Hosting
There are different types of website hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the website hosting environment they need. To pick the most proper website hosting service for your online portal, you must calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Good Points
The most relevant option for small sized websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one company to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the resources your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Atkotech Web Services, offer an extensive collection of website hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a cheaper package and you need more features, moving to a better plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Minuses
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain online portals, especially online shops, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not need server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services usually provide root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans sport diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web server plan includes guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spans of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual server is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
