There are different varieties of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the best hosting service for your web page, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Positive Sides
The most relevant option for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a plan that will include the features your web page in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Blue Grape Hosting, offer a big array of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-price plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Specific web pages, particularly web shops, request software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that require server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in strictly the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both platforms generally come with full root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts include diverse features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package includes guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short intervals of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
Before You Decide...
Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a web site.
