There are different types of hosting accounts suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most appropriate option for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per individual considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of storage space and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a package that will provide the resources your site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the online portal. We, at Hostinger, offer a huge assortment of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Inconveniences

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given online portals, particularly online shops, require applications to be available on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not need root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that require full root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in exactly the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments commonly offer full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server plans sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS hosting server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spans of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some companies provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable performance of a web site. Before settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the prerequisites for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still not sure which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
