There are various varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Advantages
The most suitable option for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per user substantially. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get an account that will have the features your website really needs. 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 host the web site. We, at Hypervirtual, offer an immense assortment of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-price plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced account requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain web sites, particularly web stores, need applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software that does not request full server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in absolutely the same way.
Both platforms typically include complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans sport different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual web server plan contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spells of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.
Yet, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement web server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Deciding...
Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a site. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the requirements for the web site to run properly, especially if it is script-powered.
