There are different kinds of hosting plans suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Positive Signs
The best choice for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order an account that will offer the specs your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at webspromoted, offer a big collection of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a better account takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some sites, above all online storefronts, request applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software that does not request full root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that need complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it functions in a precisely identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms typically provide server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting plans come with different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private hosting server package has guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, given hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Selecting...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable work of a web portal. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the prerequisites for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
