Top Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting plans suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant web hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Positive Sides

The most relevant alternative for small web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will include the features your web site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Web Of Friends, offer an extensive choice of web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low priced account and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given online portals, especially online shops, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not demand server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions generally come with full root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web server account has guaranteed server storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for short spells of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.

Prior To Choosing...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the proper operation of a web site. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the prerequisites for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
