There are various kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the best hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Virtues
The most adequate option for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of server storage and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will include the features your web page really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Dornan Hosting, offer a vast choice of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-price plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced package demands only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Downsides
A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Certain web pages, particularly web shops, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software programs that do not request complete root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that need full server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in a strictly identical way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments usually provide full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server plans come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server plan includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
