Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting plans suitable for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web page, you need to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The best choice for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of web space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a package that will have the resources your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the web site. We, at Acken Host, offer a huge variety of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low priced plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan demands just a click.
Shared Hosting - Inconveniences
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain sites, mainly online stores, request applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not request full root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that require complete root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in exactly the same manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms generally offer root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting packages involve different functionalities depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS web server plan contains guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spells of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to manage as it includes a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Before You Decide...
Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the proper functioning of a website.
