There are different kinds of hosting packages suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.
Shared Hosting - Good Points
The most optimal option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per user seriously. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, delivering different amounts of storage space and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the resources your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the site. We, at BitsHost, offer a great choice of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a less powerful package and you demand more resources, moving to a better package requires only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Some web pages, mainly web shops, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that need complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it runs in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually provide root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server accounts include diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server web hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spans of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS is easier to run as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web site. Before picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
