There are different varieties of hosting solutions suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The most adequate choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of server storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will have the specs your site indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at ZanyHosting.com, offer a large array of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low priced package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Points
A weak side of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Some web pages, particularly web storefronts, require software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not request root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments normally come with root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages come with diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual hosting server account has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief stretches of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
