There are different kinds of hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Hosting - Positive Signs
The best option for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per user critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, providing different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will have the resources your online portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at Seanic, offer an extensive selection of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost account and you need more system resources, upgrading to a high-end account takes just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Downsides
A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Specific web pages, particularly online stores, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not request full server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that request full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally provide complete root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans contain diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting package contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS server is easier to manipulate as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Before selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
