There are different varieties of hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your web page, you must calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Positive Sides
The most proper alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per user drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of data storage and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will offer the specs your website indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Zero Gravity Web Hosting, offer a large variety of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end package takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A drawback of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web pages, mainly web shops, request applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that demand complete root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions traditionally come with full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans have different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief 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 architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.
Nonetheless, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
Prior To Deciding...
Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable performance of a site. Before picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
