There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Hosting - Privileges
5 websites hosted
Unlimited websites hosted
The most proper choice for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per person seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase an account that will include the resources your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Dornan Hosting, offer a wide variety of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low priced package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end package takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Certain web pages, mainly web shops, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same way.
Both environments typically include complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different specs based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS account includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spells of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual server is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
