There are different varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Sides
The most relevant choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per client radically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of data space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will offer the resources your site really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Hosting On The Hudson, offer a large variety of hosting packages suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-price plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced account requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Points
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific online portals, especially web stores, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not require complete root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that demand full 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 private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it functions in a strictly identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments typically give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise diverse specifications based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS hosting plan has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
