The most adequate alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per user radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get an account that will have the specifications your web portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at GreatHosts.biz, offer a vast array of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account requires just a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Some online portals, particularly web storefronts, demand applications to be present on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that require complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in a strictly identical way.
Both environments traditionally come with complete root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans comprise different specifications based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting package includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
