There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web site, you must reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Strong Points
The best option for small scale sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per individual seriously. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of server storage and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your web portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web portal. We, at EXTEC, offer an immense array of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan requires only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Certain web sites, especially online shops, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not need full root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that demand full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in exactly the same way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally include full server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts have different characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web server account contains guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spells of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.
Still, given web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a website.
