There are different varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most proper hosting service for your site, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
The most appropriate option for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per person noticeably. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, providing different amounts of data storage and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will offer the specs your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the site. We, at PC021 Hosting solutions, offer a great selection of hosting packages suitable for private or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Certain web portals, especially online stores, demand software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that need server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments typically offer root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting plans include diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS package includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spans of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by competent customers.
However, given hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
Before You Select...
Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper work of a web site. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
