There are various varieties of hosting packages suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your website, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Points
The best option for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per client noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your web page indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at JBC Group, offer a big array of hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain online portals, chiefly web stores, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not need full server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need full root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in an exactly identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments traditionally include complete root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts come with diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
