Top Hosting

There are various types of hosting services appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most adequate alternative for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per customer substantially. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting firm to another, offering different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a plan that will include the specifications your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Greenolive Hosting Solutions, offer a vast assortment of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low grade package and you demand more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web portals, particularly online storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not demand complete server root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that require full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it acts in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly come with root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans sport different specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web server hosting package includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper operation of a site. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the requirements for the web site to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
