There are various sorts of hosting packages suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the best hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Positive Signs
The most suitable choice for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per user substantially. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy an account that will provide the specifications your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the web site. We, at Kainos Design Technologies Ltd., offer a large collection of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you need more functionalities, moving to a better package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific web portals, chiefly web storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms normally provide full server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts come with different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web server hosting plan has guaranteed disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute web server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
