There are different sorts of hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.
Shared Web Hosting - Assets
The most adequate alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per client drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your online portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at IRCMRU Hosting, offer an enormous assortment of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-end account and you require more features, moving to a high-end account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific sites, above all online shops, require applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require full root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally provide full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans sport diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS web server hosting account offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for short intervals of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to run as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
Before You Decide...
Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper operation of a site. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the requirements for the website to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
