There are various sorts of hosting packages suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you must access what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Positive Points
The most relevant option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per user considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of web storage space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a package that will include the specifications your web site in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Techwesthosting, offer an immense assortment of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a less powerful package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Some sites, chiefly web shops, require software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software that does not request full root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that need complete server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in exactly the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both environments generally offer root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with different features based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server hosting plan includes guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spells of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by competent customers.
However, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper functioning of a site. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, survey completely all the preconditions for the web page to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
