There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, 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 met.
Shared web hosting - Perks
The most suitable choice for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per user markedly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one provider to another, providing different amounts of web storage and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will include the specs your web site in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web page. We, at Cheap Hosted, offer a big collection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a basic account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific web sites, especially web storefronts, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not demand complete server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that need complete server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in absolutely the same way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both environments traditionally include complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts involve diverse features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting package includes guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spells of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained users.
Nonetheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
Prior To Electing...
Selecting the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a website. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the requirements for the website to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
