There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Virtues

The most optimal choice for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per user significantly. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will offer the features your web page really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web page. We, at Ashkron Hosting, offer a big collection of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given sites, particularly online shops, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software that does not require complete root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that demand root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually provide full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts come with diverse features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting plan contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to run as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete web hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the proper work of a website. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the site to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
