There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most proper hosting service for your site, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Privileges
The most adequate choice for small websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client critically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of web space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will provide the resources your web page indeed demands. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at 123HOST, offer a wide assortment of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a basic plan and you require more features, upgrading to a better package requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific web portals, chiefly web storefronts, need applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not need full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in absolutely the same manner.
Both environments generally give complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans have different functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
