There are various varieties of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your site, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Pluses
The most optimal choice for small size websites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per client seriously. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will include the features your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Plinghost, offer an immense collection of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Certain online portals, above all web storefronts, require software applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software programs that do not require root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that request root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services usually include root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts involve diverse specs based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server plan offers guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief intervals of time if there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS is simpler to run as it offers virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
