Top Web Hosting

There are various kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To pick the best web hosting service for your website, you must judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Hosting - Pluses

The most proper option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per user substantially. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will include the resources your website actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at Zoutsos Web Hosting and DNS, offer a vast assortment of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you need more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific websites, chiefly web shops, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software that does not request full root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

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

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions generally offer root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans involve diverse features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short stretches of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given providers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Selecting the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a site. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based.
