There are different varieties of hosting plans suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the best hosting service for your online portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Dividends
The best alternative for small scale web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per customer drastically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of server storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the specs your website indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Hostloo, offer a vast assortment of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low grade account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful account involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given sites, especially online storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not need full root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand full root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in exactly the same way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally provide complete root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS hosting server package includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable users.
Nevertheless, given web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable work of a web page. Before settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the requirements for the website to operate properly, especially if it is script-powered.
