There are various types of hosting packages suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web site, you have to judge what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Virtues
The most suitable alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of web storage space and monthly traffic, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a package that will have the resources your web page in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at webspromoted, offer a big choice of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful plan and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given web portals, particularly online stores, request applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that need server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services typically offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans come with different specs depending on what the hosting company offers. A VPS hosting server account offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short stretches of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
Before You Decide...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a web page.
