There are various varieties of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most optimal hosting service for your site, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Perks
The best option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per client significantly. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a package that will offer the resources your site actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Hepsia.Co, offer a huge array of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a basic account and you need more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Inconveniences
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Some online portals, above all online storefronts, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not need complete root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that require full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an exactly identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually come with complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages contain diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, given web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a web portal. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-based.
