There are various kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect 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 best choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per user radically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will offer the resources your web site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at Website Pro Host, offer a great choice of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, moving to a high-end plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given web sites, mainly web shops, request applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it functions in an exactly identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions usually include root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans involve diverse features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS hosting server plan includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained users.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable work of a online portal.
