The most adequate option for small sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one provider to another, supplying different amounts of server storage and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will provide the features your online portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Plinghost, offer a wide collection of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low priced plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better account involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A drawback of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific web portals, chiefly online stores, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not need complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that request full server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in exactly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both platforms usually include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans include different features depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server plan includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, some hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
