There are various sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Perquisites
The most proper choice for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specifications your web page indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Vertex Hosts, offer an enormous variety of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a less powerful package and you demand more system resources, moving to a better plan requires only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Points
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain web pages, above all web storefronts, request applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that require full root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments traditionally give root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans have diverse characteristics based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server account offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
