There are different kinds of hosting packages suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your site, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.
Shared website hosting - Pluses
The best choice for small sized sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per client substantially. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specs your website really needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the online portal. We, at GoKookyGo Hosting, offer an immense variety of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low-end account and you require more resources, upgrading to a high-end account involves just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Specific online portals, particularly web stores, need applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not request complete root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that require complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments generally offer root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans include diverse characteristics based on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual server web hosting account offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief intervals of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
Prior To Electing...
Selecting the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a online portal. Before settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the online portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
