There are various kinds of hosting services appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the best hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.
Shared Website Hosting - Benefits
The most suitable choice for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per user significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of web space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for an account that will include the specs your web portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Snappy Networks, offer a vast assortment of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you need more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Weaknesses
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Given web sites, chiefly online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not request root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that need root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it runs in strictly the same way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both services usually come with full root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to tackle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
