Top Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting platform they require. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be satisfied.

Shared Hosting - Benefits

The most adequate alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per user significantly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will provide the specs your site really needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Tierra Hosting, offer a wide array of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful package demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given web portals, chiefly web storefronts, request software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not request complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that request complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in precisely the same way.

VPS Servers

Both platforms generally include full server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages include diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to cope with as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a site. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the preconditions for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best web hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales representatives will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
