There are various types of hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Privileges
The most appropriate option for small size web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per person considerably. There are different web hosting plans varying from one company to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will include the features your site indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at YourPowerHosting, offer a big array of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-cost plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package demands just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Some websites, especially online storefronts, require software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not require root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments traditionally give root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans comprise different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spells of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.
Still, some hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
