Best Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Strong Points
The most proper option for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one company to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will provide the resources your site in fact requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the website. We, at Mad Dog Web Hosting, offer an immense choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a basic package and you demand more resources, moving to a high-end account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some websites, particularly online shops, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not demand full root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that need full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions commonly provide full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting plans comprise diverse specs depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS package includes guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
