There are various sorts of hosting packages suitable for different sites in regard to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Points
The most suitable choice for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per person critically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will have the resources your site really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at ARK SERVERS, offer an enormous array of hosting plans suitable for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A drawback of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Certain web portals, above all online shops, demand applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not demand full root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that request complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions generally come with full server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server packages sport diverse characteristics based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to handle as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled users.
Nonetheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a website. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the web page to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
