Top Hosting

There are various sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate 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 demands that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Positive Points

The most proper option for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will provide the specifications your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web portal. We, at GTO Hosting, offer a large collection of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-cost package and you need more features, moving to a more advanced account demands only a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given sites, chiefly web shops, need applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software applications that do not request server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that request root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions typically offer full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting plans have diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spells of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Before You Select...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper work of a online portal. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, study carefully all the requirements for the web page to work properly, especially if it is script-powered.
