Best Website Hosting

There are different varieties of website hosting services appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the website hosting environment they require. To choose the most suitable website hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

Shared website hosting - Positive Points

The most suitable option for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per user drastically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the specs your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the web page. We, at marianahost, offer an enormous collection of website hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a better plan takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web pages, chiefly web shops, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions normally offer server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages comprise diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to tackle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the proper functioning of a web site.
