There are different sorts of web hosting services appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the best web hosting service for your website, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.

The most relevant option for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of disk space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your web page in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at HostPapaya, offer a great choice of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a cheaper account and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful package requires just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Signs

A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Given online portals, above all online stores, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software that does not demand full root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that require root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both platforms usually provide full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages sport diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package has guaranteed data 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 machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run web server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable performance of a web portal. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still unsure which one is the best web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
