Top Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Good Points

The most optimal choice for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per individual critically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will have the specifications your web site indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the website. We, at Xgen Hosting, offer a vast collection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low grade account and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some online portals, above all web stores, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that require root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms traditionally include root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts contain different features depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server web hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to run as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper operation of a site. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the preconditions for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
