There are various kinds of hosting plans suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the best hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Dividends
The most appropriate option for small scale web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per client critically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of web storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will offer the specifications your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the web site. We, at VaporRave.com, offer a huge selection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-price plan and you demand more resources, moving to a high-end account involves only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Drawbacks
A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given websites, particularly online shops, request software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not request full server root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require complete server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both environments typically offer complete server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server packages include diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief spells of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by competent users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
