There are different types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you need to judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.
Shared Web Hosting - Virtues
The best option for small scale web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per customer seriously. There are different web hosting plans varying from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of server storage and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will include the features your web site really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at BitsHost, offer an extensive array of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low grade account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better package requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some sites, above all online shops, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software that does not need full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that request full root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms generally offer root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans comprise different specs based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spells of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
Prior To Opting...
Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a online portal. Prior to opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
