There are various varieties of hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web page, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared website hosting - Positive Sides
The most proper alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will have the specifications your web site in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at Blue Grape Hosting, offer a great selection of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package involves just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A negative aspect of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Some web portals, mainly online stores, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that request full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally include full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server packages come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting server package offers guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
