There are various sorts of hosting packages suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides
The most proper alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per customer substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of data space and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the features your online portal really requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small package that cannot host the web site. We, at International Group of Anthony, offer an immense choice of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given web portals, above all online storefronts, need applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not need complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in precisely the same way.
Both services commonly provide full root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans include different features based on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting plan has guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by skilled clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper performance of a web portal. Before selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the website to perform properly, especially if it is script-based.
