There are various sorts of hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most relevant hosting service for your web site, you have to access what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Good Points
The most adequate alternative for small web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per client noticeably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of server space and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specifications your site really needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at , offer a vast variety of hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a better account involves only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web pages, mainly web storefronts, demand applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software programs that do not demand full root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that demand root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions traditionally come with complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans contain diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server hosting account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
