Top Hosting

There are different varieties of hosting services appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

Shared Hosting - Virtues

The most adequate alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per individual noticeably. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy an account that will have the resources your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Dornan Hosting, offer an extensive collection of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low priced package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Shortcomings

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Certain online portals, particularly online shops, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software that does not require full server root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that require complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments generally include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans sport diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting account has guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spells of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a website. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
