There are various types of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate hosting service for your website, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Sides
The most optimal alternative for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per client critically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and web traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will provide the features your site indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the online portal. We, at LuisArts Network, offer a great collection of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-cost plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful package demands only a click.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Some websites, above all online shops, need applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not need server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that need full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally give root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages include diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual hosting server plan contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief spells of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
Before You Decide...
Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the requirements for the web page to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
