There are various types of hosting services appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Good Points
The most adequate option for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual critically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will offer the specifications your web page really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at PacificByte Net Services, offer an immense assortment of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Given online portals, mainly online shops, need software applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that need complete root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in exactly the same way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services normally offer full server root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with different functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server web hosting plan offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to administer as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
