Top Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Dividends

The best choice for small online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per person seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, offering different quotas of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a plan that will include the resources your website in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the web page. We, at Happy Hosting UK, offer an immense selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-price account and you need more resources, moving to a high-end package involves just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Sides

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Some web sites, especially online shops, demand software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not require full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that request server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Servers

Both solutions traditionally offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual server package offers guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spells of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper work of a site. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the prerequisites for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
