The most suitable alternative for small scale web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per person drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, supplying different quotas of web storage space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will include the specs your web page in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Cloud4Host, offer a large collection of web hosting plans suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-price account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account involves just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some web portals, particularly online stores, request software applications to be activated on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that demand full root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both services generally come with root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts involve diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual hosting server account has guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short intervals of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
Prior To Opting...
Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the stable operation of a web site.
