There are different types of hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Benefits
The most suitable option for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per person radically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will provide the features your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the online portal. We, at The Duck Host, offer an extensive collection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more resources, moving to a better plan demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Some web sites, chiefly online shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software that does not need root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that require complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Servers
Both services traditionally come with complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse features based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
