There are various types of hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Aspects
The most relevant option for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one company to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will have the specs your website indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Kal Mass Media Hosting, offer a great variety of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-price plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Inconveniences
A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Given web pages, particularly online storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that request root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both services generally offer complete server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages contain diverse specs based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short intervals of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
