Top Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most optimal choice for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per person significantly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage and web traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain an account that will have the resources your website really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at North Vancouver Web Hosting, offer a wide assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich plan requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given online portals, mainly online stores, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that demand complete root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers 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 absolutely identical way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments usually provide complete server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans comprise diverse features based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual hosting server account contains guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spells of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to manipulate as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can affect the stable operation of a web page.
