There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites
The most optimal choice for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will provide the specs your online portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the site. We, at Plinghost, offer an enormous selection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low grade package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better account involves only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Minuses
A disadvantage of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific online portals, particularly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not need complete root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that need complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions generally provide full server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual server package has guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Selecting...
Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the proper functioning of a web page. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, appraise completely all the prerequisites for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
