There are various varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Positive Aspects
The most appropriate option for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per individual substantially. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will offer the features your website indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at PIXELSPECK, offer a wide choice of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain websites, chiefly online storefronts, need applications to be present on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not need server root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that request full root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in precisely the same way.
Both services commonly come with complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private web server package includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short stretches of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
