Top Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most optimal option for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per customer seriously. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, supplying different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will include the resources your web portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the web page. We, at Mad Dog Web Hosting, offer a large choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific web sites, above all web shops, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that require full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments traditionally come with complete root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual web hosting server package includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained users.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, certain hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the proper functioning of a website.
