Which web hosting solution will be best for me?

A feature by VPS Hosting Plans.

There are various sorts of web hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the website hosting environment they need. To select the most proper hosting services for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.


Shared Web Site Hosting - Advantages

The most relevant option for small websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per customer noticeably. There are different hosting accounts differing from one host to another, supplying different amounts of server space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will include the specs your online portal really requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web page. At Lonex, there is a wide assortment of shared web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you need more features, moving to a more powerful package takes just a click of the mouse.


Shared Site Hosting - Weaknesses

A disadvantage of the shared web space hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific web sites, particularly web stores, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared webspace hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not demand full root access.


Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that demand full server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a strictly identical way.


VPSs

Both environments traditionally include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web site hosting plans, the private virtual web hosting server and the dedicated server hosting packages comprise different specs based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server hosting account contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be expanded for short spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.


Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.


Prior To Selecting...

Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a web page. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web site to operate properly, especially if it is script-powered, and, last but not least, if you have already settled on a web hosting firm, the best choice would be to ask their customer support staff for a recommendation as to which package exactly would be best for the proper work of your online portal.
