There are various types of hosting packages appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Upsides
The most suitable choice for small online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per user noticeably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your website in fact demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Bag A Name, offer an immense array of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a basic plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given online portals, above all web stores, require applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that demand root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both solutions generally come with server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server packages sport different specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spells of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
Before You Decide...
