Top Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the best web hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits 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 - Benefits

The most proper alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of server space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will have the features your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web site. We, at Compufix Professionals Inc., offer an immense choice of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end package demands only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific web sites, particularly web stores, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand full server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that request full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms usually come with complete root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server accounts sport different specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan has guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual server is easier to run as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Choose...

Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web portal. Before settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
