There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different websites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The most suitable option for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will include the specs your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Hosting Pine, offer a big assortment of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-cost package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful plan demands only a click.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Specific online portals, above all online shops, request software applications to be present on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software that does not need root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that require complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Both platforms commonly provide server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spans of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, some web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out web server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
Before You Choose...
Selecting the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable operation of a web page. Prior to settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which one is the best hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
