There are various types of hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Advantages
The most appropriate choice for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual critically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will offer the specs your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at WebRunner Domains, offer a wide selection of hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a basic package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given web portals, especially online shops, need software applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not request full root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that need complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both environments commonly include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts include diverse specs based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server web hosting package offers guaranteed storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manage as it includes a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web portal. Before opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, examine completely all the prerequisites for the site to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
