There are various kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Pluses
The most proper alternative for small scale web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per person significantly. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of data storage and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a plan that will provide the specifications your site actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the website. We, at NTyT, offer an extensive selection of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low priced account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Given sites, above all online shops, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not demand full root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that request root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both solutions generally offer root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts involve diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform web hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
