There are various kinds of hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The most relevant option for small size web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per person significantly. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting corporation to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain an account that will provide the features your website really needs. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Archon Hosting, offer a wide variety of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Given websites, above all online storefronts, request applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that request complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it runs in exactly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments generally include complete server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans involve different characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account offers guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Deciding...
Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can influence the proper performance of a online portal. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, appraise completely all the prerequisites for the web site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
