Top Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To pick the best web hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Perquisites
The most adequate option for small web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per individual noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of server storage and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will include the features your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at 04 Host, offer a large selection of web hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A shortcoming of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific web pages, chiefly web shops, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not need complete root-level access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions generally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting packages come with different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual web server account contains guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
