There are various varieties of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the best hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Pluses
The most appropriate option for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per user critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will include the specifications your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web page. We, at Hunza Web, offer a big array of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a basic package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful package takes just a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Disadvantages
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given web sites, mainly online shops, demand applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that need complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions traditionally come with complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server packages involve diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting plan includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS server is easier to tackle as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
