There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web site, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Sides
The most proper option for small size web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per user radically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will offer the features your site really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the online portal. We, at Pifusion X, offer an immense choice of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific web pages, chiefly web stores, demand applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not request full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that request server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in exactly the same way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically provide full root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve different features based on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short intervals of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
