Top Website Hosting

There are various kinds of website hosting services appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the website hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal website hosting service for your web page, you need to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Perquisites

The most suitable choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per client markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of web storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the resources your online portal indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at iNet Africa, offer a vast assortment of website hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Certain web sites, mainly online shops, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not require complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that request server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally include complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans comprise diverse features based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server web hosting account contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spans of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
