There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Advantages
The most suitable option for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per person radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will include the specs your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small package that cannot host the web page. We, at The Pro Host, offer a big collection of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low grade plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan demands just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific web pages, especially online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software applications that do not need full root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that demand full root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.
Both solutions normally come with full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans have different specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server hosting account includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to handle as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
Before You Choose...
Picking the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a web portal.
