There are various kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most optimal hosting service for your site, you must access what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The most relevant option for small scale web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per user radically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different quotas of web storage space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will have the resources your web page actually demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at TecWeb21 Hosting, offer a large selection of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you demand more system resources, moving to a high-end package involves only a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Disadvantages
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Given websites, particularly web shops, need applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not require complete server root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that request root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services normally include root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting packages have diverse features based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spans of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to run as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified users.
Nevertheless, certain web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement web server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can influence the proper operation of a web site. Before selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the website to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
