There are various types of hosting services suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web page, you need to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects
The most relevant alternative for small sized web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per customer considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one host to another, supplying different quotas of data space and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a plan that will have the specs your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Consultingforge Hosting Ltd., offer a vast selection of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific web portals, mainly online storefronts, require software applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web portals that request root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in precisely the same way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services normally provide complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server packages involve different functionalities based on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual web server hosting account includes guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by skilled clients.
Nevertheless, certain hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper performance of a web site. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the preconditions for the web portal to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
