There are different kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Pluses
The best option for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per client noticeably. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting vendor to another, providing different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will have the specifications your web portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Gose Internet Services (GIS), offer a big selection of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain web portals, particularly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not demand root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that demand full root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms typically come with root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages involve diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spells of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by trained customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
