There are various kinds of hosting packages suitable for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you have to judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Privileges
The most appropriate option for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per individual critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of server space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your site actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at Galaxy Gig, offer a wide collection of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a better package takes just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Given web pages, especially web shops, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that demand root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically give complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server accounts comprise diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual hosting server package contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to tackle as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable performance of a site. Prior to selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect completely all the requirements for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-powered.
