Top Hosting

There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different sites in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Good Points

The most relevant alternative for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per user radically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of data space and web traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will provide the specifications your website actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at AX Cloud, offer an immense assortment of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced account requires only a click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Specific websites, especially web storefronts, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software that does not need server root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both solutions typically provide full root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting packages sport diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web hosting package contains guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spells of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to manage as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Opt...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web site. Prior to picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the preconditions for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
