There are different varieties of hosting services suitable for different sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Upsides
The most relevant choice for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of data storage and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will offer the specifications your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at JualanHost, offer an immense collection of hosting plans suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you need more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package requires just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points
A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Given websites, especially online storefronts, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not request server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that demand server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in exactly the same way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services usually come with full server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts have different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by practiced customers.
Nonetheless, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they implement web server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
