There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs
The most relevant choice for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain an account that will provide the resources your web page in fact needs. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Techsur.com, offer a wide choice of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-end package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Specific web portals, above all web storefronts, require applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software platforms that do not request root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand full server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in a precisely identical way.
Both solutions generally offer server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages come with diverse characteristics based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting server plan includes guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
