There are various varieties of hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your website, you must estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Perks
The most relevant choice for small size online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per person drastically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the features your web page actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Gose Internet Services (GIS), offer a wide variety of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low grade package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account requires only a click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific web sites, especially online shops, request applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate solely software that does not request root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that require complete server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both platforms commonly include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans contain diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS web server account includes guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
