There are different types of hosting services appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
The most appropriate alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per client considerably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will offer the features your site indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the website. We, at HostSik, offer a vast selection of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you demand more features, moving to a more powerful account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific web portals, particularly online stores, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that require complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions generally offer full server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts comprise different specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account offers guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spans of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to manipulate as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
