There are various types of hosting packages suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Points
The best alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of data space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will have the specs your web site really requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at 99Web, offer a huge array of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-end plan and you demand more features, moving to a more powerful account takes only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Downsides
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain web pages, particularly online storefronts, require applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that need root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it runs in precisely the same way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments typically give complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to handle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified customers.
Nonetheless, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
Before You Elect...
Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web page. Before picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web site to operate properly, especially if it is script-powered.
