There are various kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your web page, you need to judge what server-side software applications 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 met.
Shared Website Hosting - Advantages
The most appropriate alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per individual critically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will provide the specifications your site really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the website. We, at 1onlinehost, offer an immense variety of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a basic plan and you demand more features, moving to a more advanced plan demands just a click.
Shared website hosting - Shortcomings
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given web pages, especially online stores, need software applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not need full root-level access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it works in a strictly identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally provide full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans contain different specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS web server hosting package offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS server is easier to handle as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
