There are various kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Strong Points
The most suitable alternative for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per client markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, providing different amounts of disk storage and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a plan that will offer the features your web page actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the web site. We, at Host Philippines, offer an enormous choice of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a cheaper account and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves just a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects
A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given web pages, mainly online stores, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not demand full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that demand full server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both services usually come with full root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts sport diverse characteristics based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting account offers guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Yet, certain companies provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can influence the proper operation of a web site. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, appraise thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still not sure which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
