There are different kinds of hosting services appropriate for different websites in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Sides
The most appropriate alternative for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per customer substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the features your web page actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot host the web portal. We, at YASPE, offer a great choice of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account demands only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Minuses
A disadvantage of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Given websites, mainly online stores, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software programs that do not require full server root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that require full root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it operates in absolutely the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments traditionally give full server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts comprise diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual hosting server account has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent clients.
Nonetheless, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
Before You Elect...
Selecting the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper work of a online portal.
