There are different varieties of hosting packages suitable for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web portal, you must evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Points
The most suitable alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per client radically. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase an account that will include the specifications your online portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at JaxHost Website Hosting, offer a great selection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-end account and you demand more features, moving to a better package demands only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given sites, mainly web storefronts, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that request complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in strictly the same manner.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both services usually provide full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages sport diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by tech-savvy users.
Nonetheless, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete dedicated server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
Before You Select...
Picking the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable functioning of a web site. Before selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, check completely all the requirements for the web portal to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
