Top Website Hosting

There are different types of website hosting plans suitable for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the website hosting platform they require. To choose the most relevant website hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Web Hosting - Perks

The best option for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per client considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, supplying different amounts of data storage space and monthly traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will include the specifications your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at marianahost, offer an extensive assortment of website hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a cheaper account and you need more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain sites, mainly online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software platforms that do not request root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments usually offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts involve different specifications depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual web server plan offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
