There are different types of hosting packages appropriate for different sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Aspects
The most relevant option for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will include the specifications your web site in fact demands. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Hitpresence Hosting, offer a big array of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-end account and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account involves only a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some websites, mainly online storefronts, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand root access, or if your web 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 Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally provide server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans contain diverse features based on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web server hosting account offers guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spans of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
