The most appropriate choice for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per person seriously. There are different web hosting packages varying from one host to another, providing different quotas of data storage and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will offer the specs your online portal really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at JualanHost, offer an enormous selection of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you demand more features, moving to a high-end package involves just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Some sites, especially online storefronts, need applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not need root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that demand full server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms commonly include complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts involve diverse features depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web server account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by competent users.
Nevertheless, given web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
