There are different sorts of hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs
The best choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per person markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a package that will provide the specs your site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Tugoats, offer a great collection of hosting packages suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a basic account and you demand more features, moving to a more advanced account takes just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given websites, chiefly online shops, require applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not require complete server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that require full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services typically provide complete server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans have different specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute web server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
Before You Select...
Settling on the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Before settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the website to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
