The most adequate option for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will include the specs your web site actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Premium Hosting Solutions, offer a vast array of hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low-price plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Certain sites, mainly web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments usually provide full root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting packages have diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to tackle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
