Top Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Dividends

The most relevant choice for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual radically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a plan that will have the resources your web site in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Blue Ribbon Hosting, offer a vast selection of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you demand more resources, moving to a high-end account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given web sites, chiefly web shops, request software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not demand root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that require complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in strictly the same way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally provide complete root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans have diverse features depending on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual server hosting package contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to run as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some providers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Before You Choose...

Choosing the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the proper functioning of a web portal. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-based.
