There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your website, you must calculate what server-side software programs it requires, 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 satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Privileges
The most suitable option for small web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per customer critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different amounts of disk space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will have the specs your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at Hosting Plus de Proyco Corporacion, offer a huge collection of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-price package and you require more features, moving to a more feature-rich package involves just a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Some web pages, above all web shops, demand software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software that does not demand complete server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that need full root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally offer complete server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages include diverse functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server account offers guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced clients.
Nonetheless, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute dedicated server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
