Top Hosting

There are different varieties of hosting services suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the best hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.

Shared Website Hosting - Benefits

The best choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your website 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 account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Social Stream ME, offer a wide selection of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you demand more resources, moving to a better account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Shortcomings

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Certain web portals, chiefly web storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not need complete root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that need full server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in precisely the same way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally give server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans contain different characteristics based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server hosting account has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they complete dedicated hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
