There are various kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the best hosting service for your web page, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Positive Points
The most proper alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per client noticeably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, furnishing different amounts of web space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your site actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at The Duck Host, offer a huge variety of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low priced package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain web portals, chiefly web shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software applications that do not require full server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that request root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it works in absolutely the same way.
Both environments usually offer full server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server accounts involve diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short intervals of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting firms provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
Before You Opt...
Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable functioning of a online portal. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the preconditions for the website to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
