There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the best hosting service for your website, you need to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
The most relevant choice for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per individual critically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a package that will include the resources your website really demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at WebConfig, offer an immense array of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-price plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a high-end account involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some websites, particularly web storefronts, demand applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not need root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that require full root-level access, or if your portal 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 virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both services normally offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages involve diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short spells of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to administer as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform web hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
Before You Opt...
Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable work of a web portal. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
