There are various kinds of hosting services suitable for different websites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared Web Hosting - Perks
The most adequate alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per client seriously. There are different web hosting packages differing from one provider to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will offer the specs your web site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Real Tech Hosting, offer a vast assortment of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a less powerful package and you need more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some online portals, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not request full root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that demand root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually provide complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to manipulate as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
Before You Opt...
Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a web site. Prior to choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, review carefully all the requirements for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
