Top Hosting

There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Dividends

The most proper choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per individual drastically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will provide the resources your web site in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at MurnHost, offer a big variety of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a basic package and you require more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Certain web pages, chiefly online shops, require software applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not need complete root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that demand root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments usually include root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts involve different functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server account has guaranteed data storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short periods of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to administer as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a site. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, appraise thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
