Best Shared Hosting

There are various sorts of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared Website Hosting - Positive Signs

The most proper choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per user noticeably. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will have the features your web site in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Elasticis Hosting+, offer an enormous choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced package takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Some web pages, especially web stores, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software that does not request complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Servers

Both platforms traditionally include full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server packages come with different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan contains guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to run as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
