The best choice for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of storage space and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will include the resources your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Fast Cloud Server, offer a great collection of hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-end plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account requires just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain online portals, above all online stores, demand applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not request full server root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that request root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions commonly include complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans come with diverse specs based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web server plan has guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to tackle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
