Top Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Points

The most suitable option for small web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual seriously. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will provide the specifications your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Murray Host, offer an immense array of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some web sites, mainly online storefronts, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not demand full root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that request full root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services normally offer complete root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server packages have different characteristics based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server plan includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Before You Decide...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a web page. Before opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the prerequisites for the web site to work properly, especially if it is script-powered.
