There are various varieties of hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs
The most suitable choice for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per user substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will have the features your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Billixx LLC, offer a great assortment of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Specific online portals, especially online shops, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting solution, you can activate only software that does not require full root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in a strictly identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically include full server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts come with different functionalities based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual server plan has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to administer as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.
Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
