Top Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your online portal, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Perquisites

The most optimal option for small scale web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per user substantially. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will have the features your site actually requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the site. We, at Wight Hosting, offer a wide selection of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low-end account and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Inconveniences

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some websites, especially web stores, require applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not require root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both services typically provide complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include diverse specifications based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the stable work of a web page. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
