There are various sorts of hosting packages suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.
Shared web hosting - Virtues
The most proper option for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per person noticeably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of storage space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will have the specifications your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at AtmoVantage, offer a big array of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-price account and you demand more features, upgrading to a more advanced account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some web sites, mainly online shops, need software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both environments usually include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting plans have diverse specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short stretches of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient clients.
However, some providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
