Top Website Hosting
There are various types of website hosting plans suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the website hosting environment they need. To choose the most optimal website hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Perks
The most appropriate alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one company to another, providing different quotas of server storage and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a plan that will include the specifications your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the website. We, at NYC-WebDesign.com Best Web Hosting Services, offer a vast choice of website hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a less powerful package and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain web portals, especially online storefronts, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not request full server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that need server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services traditionally come with complete server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with diverse specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spans of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
Before You Reach a Decision...
Picking the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a site. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the preconditions for the web portal to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
