There are various types of hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The most appropriate choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer noticeably. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of server space and monthly traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will offer the specs your web page really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at V2K IT Solutions, offer a big variety of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low priced plan and you demand more features, moving to a high-end account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific web sites, above all online storefronts, request software applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not request root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that request full root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it performs in exactly the same way.
Both platforms usually include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts include different specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS server web hosting plan includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spells of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
