The most proper alternative for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per person considerably. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different quotas of disk storage and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at MyGreatHost, offer an immense assortment of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific sites, mainly online shops, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that request complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it works in strictly the same way.
Both services usually include complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages sport different functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting server plan includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spans of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
