There are various sorts of hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your website, you must calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Advantages
The most adequate option for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per customer seriously. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will provide the specifications your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at AIA Web Hosting, offer a wide selection of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful package involves just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given sites, above all online shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand complete root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Private Servers
Both environments typically provide full root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts sport diverse features depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server package has guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, certain providers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
Before You Elect...
Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a site.
