There are different kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Signs
The most optimal option for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual substantially. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will offer the resources your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Hepsia, offer a large variety of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a basic account and you need more functionalities, moving to a better package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Shortcomings
A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific online portals, above all web storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software that does not need full root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that need root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both solutions generally provide complete root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts include diverse specifications based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server web hosting account contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to tackle as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a online portal. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
