There are different kinds of hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the best hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Pluses
The most optimal choice for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per customer critically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will offer the features your online portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Space Hostia, offer a great assortment of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a basic account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a better package demands just a click.
Shared Hosting - Drawbacks
A negative side of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Some websites, mainly online shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install only software that does not request complete root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that demand server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a precisely identical way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both environments traditionally come with root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts sport different features based on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed web storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spells of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
Prior To Opting...
Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a web page. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
