There are various kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Strong Points
The best choice for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of disk space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will have the resources your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the site. We, at WebhostXchange, offer an extensive variety of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful plan requires just a click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given web pages, chiefly web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that need root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it works in exactly the same manner.
Both platforms normally give full root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans contain different characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting package has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spans of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to run as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by competent customers.
Nevertheless, certain providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
Before You Reach a Decision...
