There are different types of hosting services appropriate for different sites with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web page, you need to access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Dividends
The most adequate alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will have the specs your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Pixalogy Hosting, offer a large selection of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low priced account and you require more features, moving to a better package requires just a click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Some web pages, above all online stores, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software that does not require root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that require root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally offer root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans involve different features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server web hosting account offers guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spells of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper work of a web site. Before selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
