There are various kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects
The most suitable option for small sized web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per customer radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will have the features your web site in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Hosting and Design for Us, offer a huge collection of hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a better package demands only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Sides
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Certain online portals, mainly online stores, need applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting environment, you can install only software programs that do not need root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that need root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it performs in absolutely the same way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both environments usually give full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts include diverse features depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting account has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for short periods of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by practiced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given web hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
