There are various types of hosting packages suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites
The most optimal option for small websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per customer drastically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of web storage and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will have the specs your site actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at LivHanA- hosting, offer a wide collection of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a high-end package requires just a click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given online portals, above all web shops, require applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not request full root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that need full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it works in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments usually offer server root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages include different functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server hosting plan has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
