The best option for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per person seriously. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, offering different quotas of web space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will provide the resources your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Holt Technology Corporation, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich account demands only a click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Given web sites, chiefly online stores, request applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not request full server root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that request full root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Both services usually come with full server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with diverse features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual web hosting server package has guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spells of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given web hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
