There are various varieties of hosting services suitable for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web site, you need to judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs
The most appropriate alternative for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per client seriously. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will offer the specs your site really requires. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Hepsia, offer an extensive collection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-price plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a high-end account takes just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given web pages, mainly online stores, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not need full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that require server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in strictly the same way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments usually come with root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web hosting server package contains guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short intervals of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by knowledgeable clients.
However, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement hosting server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper performance of a site. Prior to picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
