Top Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you have to judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Benefits

The most suitable alternative for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per user critically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the features your web page really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Maxima Host, offer an extensive variety of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a basic plan and you require more resources, moving to a better package requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Some web portals, mainly web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not request full server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that require complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions commonly include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans involve different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual server web hosting account contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spans of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual server is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient users.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web site. Before picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the requirements for the web portal to function properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
