There are various varieties of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Positive Points
The most suitable choice for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per customer drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of data storage and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will include the specs your site indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the website. We, at EZ IT Solutions, offer a big choice of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you demand more features, moving to a better package demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Certain web sites, particularly web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not require complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both services traditionally include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts contain different specs depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting plan includes guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by proficient clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
