There are various varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate 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 specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared Web Hosting - Good Points
The most relevant choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per customer markedly. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of web space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a package that will include the resources your site actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at GoBobby.net, offer a big variety of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-cost package and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account involves just a click.
Shared Hosting - Shortcomings
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some online portals, especially web stores, request applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software that does not need full root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that request complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in an exactly identical way.
Both environments typically give server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans contain different specs based on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual private web hosting server account includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
Prior To Selecting...
Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the proper work of a site. Before settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
