There are different kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web page, you have to judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Assets
The most relevant alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per customer considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of data space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the specifications your web site actually requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at FDS Web Hosting Services, offer a large array of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low grade account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes just a click.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Some sites, mainly web shops, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not request root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that require root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically offer server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts sport different characteristics based on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief spans of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
Prior To Deciding...
Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper operation of a web page. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to run properly, especially if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
