Top Web Hosting

There are various sorts of web hosting services suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the best web hosting service for your web page, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

Shared Website Hosting - Upsides

The most adequate option for small web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per user seriously. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of disk space and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will offer the specs your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at American Patriot Hosting, offer an enormous variety of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low grade plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful account takes just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A drawback of the shared hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Specific sites, above all online stores, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that request server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it functions in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Servers

Both environments usually give root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting plans have diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spells of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they implement hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Before You Select...

Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a site. Before picking a package, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the prerequisites for the web page to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
