There are various varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different websites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.
The most adequate choice for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of disk space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a plan that will offer the specifications your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Webpaz, offer a large collection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress – to render things easier. If you kick off with a low-end account and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes only a click of the mouse.
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Certain web pages, especially web shops, request applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software platforms that do not need full root-level access.
For online portals that need complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000’s or even 1 000 000’s of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in an absolutely identical manner.
Both platforms typically include root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server plans comprise different specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short intervals of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to handle as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent users.
However, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run web server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
Settling on the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the stable functioning of a web portal. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the requirements for the web site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
