There are various varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.
Shared website hosting - Advantages
The most suitable choice for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your website actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Superior Hosting, offer a vast assortment of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Given websites, above all online stores, need applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not require root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in strictly the same way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both services generally offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with diverse features depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server package offers guaranteed storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by skilled clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
