There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The most suitable alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per client drastically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of web storage space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a package that will include the features your website in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot host the web site. We, at Your Web Host Service, offer a big array of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a cheaper plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Given web portals, above all online stores, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not request server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms traditionally offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans have different specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting account includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to manipulate as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by tech-savvy customers.
Nevertheless, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a online portal. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the requirements for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
