There are different kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Strong Points
The most proper option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per customer significantly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will include the resources your site actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Web Host EZ, offer a vast choice of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific online portals, especially web stores, need applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not require full root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that require root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both services commonly provide server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans comprise diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual server web hosting account has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spans of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled users.
Yet, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
