There are different sorts of hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Assets
The most proper choice for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual radically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will offer the resources your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Sleek Web Host, offer a big selection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-end plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a high-end account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A weakness of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some web portals, above all web shops, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not require root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that require full root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in a strictly identical way.
Both environments typically give complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with diverse features depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web server hosting package contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by skilled clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
Prior To Selecting...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
