There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Website Hosting - Positive Aspects
The most appropriate option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per user substantially. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of server space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the resources your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at AX Cloud, offer an immense selection of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low priced plan and you demand more features, moving to a more advanced plan requires only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points
A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific sites, especially web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not require root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually offer complete root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server plan includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by practiced customers.
Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
Prior To Deciding...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the requirements for the web portal to operate properly, especially if it is script-based.
