There are different types of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most adequate hosting service for your website, you have to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The most adequate option for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per individual significantly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a package that will include the resources your web portal really needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web page. We, at Vogenic Networks, offer a vast collection of hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given sites, chiefly online storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not request server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that need full root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both environments typically include server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts have different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting server package contains guaranteed data space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
Prior To Deciding...
