There are different sorts of hosting services appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs
The best alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per customer radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of data space and monthly bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the resources your website really demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot host the web site. We, at Evostrix Hosting, offer an immense assortment of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a basic package and you require more features, moving to a more feature-rich account takes just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Specific web portals, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not request complete root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both services usually offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages sport diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server hosting plan includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spells of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by experienced clients.
However, given web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
