There are different varieties of hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Virtues
The most optimal choice for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a plan that will provide the resources your web page really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Kiira Hosting, offer an extensive choice of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more powerful plan involves just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Sides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Certain websites, chiefly online storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared hosting account, you can install solely software that does not demand root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that demand root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in exactly the same way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both platforms usually include complete root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages involve different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting plan offers guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
Before You Choose...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web portal.
