Top Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting solutions suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Strong Points

The most relevant alternative for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer drastically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will offer the features your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at theclearhost, offer an enormous selection of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes only a click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain web pages, above all online stores, demand applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not demand complete server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that require root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services normally include root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages come with diverse features based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual hosting server plan offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform web server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Opt...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web site. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still not sure which one is the best web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
