Top Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting plans suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Privileges

The most suitable alternative for small online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per client considerably. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase an account that will have the features your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot host the web site. We, at I Services, Inc., offer an enormous collection of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low grade account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some sites, chiefly online stores, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not need full server root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms traditionally provide complete server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans include different features based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spans of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Deciding...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a site. Prior to choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-based.
