Top Hosting

There are different types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most appropriate option for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per person significantly. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the specifications your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web site. We, at K-Hosting Services, offer a big array of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you need more features, upgrading to a better package involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Some sites, especially web storefronts, demand applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software that does not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that require complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms commonly provide full root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans comprise diverse specifications based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server package has guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a web portal. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate completely all the requirements for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still not sure which one is the best hosting service for you, check with our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
