Top Hosting

There are various types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites

The most relevant choice for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per customer markedly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a plan that will include the specifications your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at MyKingHost, offer an enormous collection of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a cheaper package and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful package requires just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Some sites, particularly web storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not need server root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that request complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it functions in absolutely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms typically provide root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages come with diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site.
