There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Upsides
The most appropriate choice for small sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy an account that will have the specifications your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at MyGreatHost, offer a big collection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a more powerful package takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain web portals, mainly web shops, request software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need full root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that request complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally come with server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts sport diverse specs based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual hosting server plan includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spans of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
