Top Hosting

There are different types of hosting accounts appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.

Shared website hosting - Good Points

The most optimal choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per client drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will have the resources your website really demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at ARK SERVERS, offer an immense selection of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a less powerful account and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account requires only a click.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific web sites, above all web storefronts, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand full root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that request root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in a strictly identical way.

VPS Web Servers

Both environments normally come with root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting plan has guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short spans of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manage as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
