Which website hosting plan will benefit me most?

There are various kinds of web hosting plans appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

Shared Webspace Hosting - Advantages

The most appropriate choice for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual substantially. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a package that will offer the specs your online portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the web page. At 50Webs Web Hosting, there is a big array of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low grade account and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a click.

Shared Hosting - Inconveniences

A weakness of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Some web pages, above all web shops, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not require full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that demand root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in exactly the same manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both solutions typically come with complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared webspace hosting plans, the private virtual hosting server and the dedicated web hosting plans sport diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server web hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spans of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by proficient users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Before You Elect...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable operation of a online portal. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the requirements for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-driven, and, one more thing, if you have already picked a web hosting supplier, the best choice would be to ask their support team for advice as to which package exactly would be best for the proper operation of your online portal.
