Top Hosting

There are various types of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most proper hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides

The most proper alternative for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per individual considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one host to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase an account that will have the specs your website actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at City Website Services, offer an extensive array of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low-price package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package demands only a click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Some web sites, particularly online stores, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not require complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that need full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it functions in a precisely identical manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions typically offer complete root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans contain different characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief intervals of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to administer as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by competent customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
