There are different varieties of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Positive Points
The most adequate alternative for small sized websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per client seriously. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different quotas of disk storage and bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will offer the specifications your web site indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web portal. We, at JBW Services, offer a large array of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more advanced account takes just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given websites, particularly online stores, need applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Both solutions traditionally come with complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans include different specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief spells of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent customers.
Still, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
