There are various varieties of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the best hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Hosting - Assets
The best choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per user considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of server storage space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will include the features your website really demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at YTS Host, offer a vast choice of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you demand more features, moving to a better package takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given web portals, especially web shops, need software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that need full server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it acts in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms commonly give full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve diverse features based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual web server account includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to administer as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete dedicated hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Electing...
Selecting the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web portal. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the preconditions for the web site to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
