There are various varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the best hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Perks
The most proper option for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of disk storage space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a plan that will have the resources your online portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the website. We, at Hitash Consults Limited, offer a huge collection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a low-price package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan involves only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Some web pages, chiefly online shops, request software applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not request complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that request complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually come with complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans contain different features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server web hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled users.
Nevertheless, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web site. Before settling on an account, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
