There are different kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Perks
The best choice for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per client radically. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage space and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will offer the resources your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot host the website. We, at Lyve Host, offer a huge choice of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a less powerful account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account demands just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Certain web sites, above all online shops, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that need full root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally give full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts comprise diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server account includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, given companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can have an effect on the proper work of a web page. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
