There are various kinds of web hosting plans suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most appropriate web hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Perquisites

The most suitable alternative for small sized web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per person critically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will include the resources your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at The Great Host, offer a huge assortment of web hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a better package demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some websites, especially web stores, demand applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that require full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

VPS Servers

Both environments commonly give server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server hosting package has guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Electing...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can influence the proper performance of a web site. Prior to picking a package, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the web page to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
