Top Web Hosting

There are various varieties of web hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects

The most adequate choice for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person considerably. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for an account that will have the specifications your web site really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web page. We, at Platinum Web Services, offer a huge choice of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you require more features, upgrading to a more advanced account requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Some web sites, mainly online shops, require software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not request full root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that need root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally include root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts have different specifications based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief stretches of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to tackle as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
