There are different types of hosting packages appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web page, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Good Points
The most suitable alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per individual drastically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of data storage and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will have the features your web site in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at Bohohosting, offer an immense choice of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low priced plan and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich package takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Points
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Certain sites, especially online stores, need applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not demand server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that request server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments usually offer full server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans contain diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS package has guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS is easier to run as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.
Yet, some hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the stable functioning of a site. Prior to choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the online portal to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
