There are different kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you must calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The most suitable choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will offer the specifications your web portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at Sharplogics, offer an enormous selection of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package takes only a click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Some web portals, particularly web shops, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install solely software that does not request full root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that request complete root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms typically include server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans comprise different characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server package contains guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
