Top Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting accounts suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To choose the most proper web hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Points

The most adequate choice for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per individual critically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of server space and web traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will include the resources your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at Intraden, offer a huge choice of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low grade account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan takes just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Points

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Specific web pages, mainly web stores, demand applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in a precisely identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually give complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server plans include diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS hosting server plan includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, some hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute web server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web portal. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
