There are different varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the best hosting service for your web portal, you must access what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.
Shared website hosting - Privileges
The most appropriate alternative for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per customer seriously. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a package that will offer the resources your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the web page. We, at Real Tech Hosting, offer a large assortment of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low priced plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan requires only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A negative aspect of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given websites, above all online shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software applications that do not need full root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require full server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it works in an absolutely identical way.
Both platforms commonly include server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts come with different functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting server plan includes guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
However, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
Before You Decide...
Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the stable operation of a web site. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
