There are different sorts of hosting plans suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant hosting service for your web page, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Advantages
The most suitable choice for small size web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per customer significantly. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the resources your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Fast Tuna Web Hosting, offer a great variety of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-end package and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Certain web sites, particularly web shops, require applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software applications that do not require root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in precisely the same way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually provide full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages include diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manage as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
Yet, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper work of a web portal. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
