There are different types of hosting services suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Upsides
The most optimal option for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per customer noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will include the features your web portal really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Host Philippines, offer a big array of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a basic plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some online portals, especially web stores, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software that does not demand full root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in exactly the same manner.
Both environments traditionally offer root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
