There are different types of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
The most adequate choice for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per person drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specifications your web site indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Booming-Biz Hosting, offer an enormous variety of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a basic plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Given online portals, mainly online storefronts, require software applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not require root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that need root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services typically include full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server packages contain different specifications based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting account has guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the stable work of a online portal. Prior to opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
