There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different websites in regard to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web page, you have to evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Positive Aspects
The most appropriate choice for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per client substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Billixx LLC, offer an extensive assortment of hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you require more features, upgrading to a better account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given web sites, particularly online stores, demand applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms commonly give full server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages involve different specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual hosting server account contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short intervals of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to tackle as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
