There are various varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the best hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The best alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one provider to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a package that will offer the features your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Webtania, offer an enormous selection of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you require more features, upgrading to a better package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Some web portals, above all web shops, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that request root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both services commonly come with complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans come with different specs depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
Before You Opt...
Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable operation of a online portal. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the preconditions for the web page to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
