Top Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Privileges

The best option for small size web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per customer markedly. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a package that will include the specifications your online portal really requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Wantok Web Hosting, offer an enormous variety of web hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you require more features, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings

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 platforms. Certain web sites, chiefly online shops, request software applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that require complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services traditionally include root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting packages comprise different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short spells of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper work of a online portal. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate completely all the requirements for the web site to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
