Top Hosting

There are different varieties of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most relevant 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 specific demands that may need to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Positive Sides

The most proper choice for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per client radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a package that will provide the specs your online portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at 99Web, offer a wide choice of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a basic package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful package demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific web sites, above all online shops, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not request full root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need full root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both services usually offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans include diverse specs based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account includes guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief intervals of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Prior To Opting...

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a web site. Prior to opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, survey completely all the prerequisites for the website to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
