Top Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most relevant option for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will have the features your website actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at NNUK.net, offer an enormous choice of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you require more features, moving to a more feature-rich account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Points

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Certain web sites, chiefly web stores, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not need complete root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that require complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually come with complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Before You Decide...

Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper functioning of a web portal. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the preconditions for the web page to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
