There are various kinds of hosting services suitable for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Website Hosting - Privileges
The most proper option for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per client seriously. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will include the resources your site in fact needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Booming-Biz Hosting, offer a huge collection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a cheaper account and you require more functionalities, moving to a better account demands just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Given sites, especially online stores, demand applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not require full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that request full root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in precisely the same manner.
Both platforms traditionally include complete root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts come with different features depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual hosting server package has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.
Yet, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper performance of a website. Before settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the preconditions for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
