Top Hosting

There are various varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web site, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Perks

The most relevant option for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a package that will provide the specs your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at HUGOHOST, offer a large array of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-price package and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web portals, mainly online shops, require software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that need root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in absolutely the same way.


Both environments generally include full root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts include different features depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server plan contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spells of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS server is easier to handle as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, certain hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a online portal. Before choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, examine carefully all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure which one is the best hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
