Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The most suitable alternative for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per user drastically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will offer the features your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at SPV Host, offer a big assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low grade plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Certain sites, particularly online stores, require software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not need root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that require root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it performs in an exactly identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both environments commonly give root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server packages include different features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server plan offers guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained customers.
However, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they run dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web portal.
