Top Web Hosting

There are various types of web hosting plans appropriate for different sites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant web hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Points

The best choice for small websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per individual substantially. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, supplying different amounts of server storage and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will provide the resources your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Xgen Hosting, offer a wide selection of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given web portals, mainly online storefronts, need applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that need full server root access, or if your website 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 private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages come with diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS server web hosting account offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short stretches of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, certain companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Deciding...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the proper functioning of a site. Prior to settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the preconditions for the website to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
