There are different kinds of web hosting services suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they require. To choose the most proper web hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

Shared Hosting - Virtues

The most relevant choice for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per user critically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for an account that will offer the features your web page actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Web Of Friends, offer an immense selection of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Specific online portals, mainly online storefronts, require applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that need complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in exactly the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both services normally provide complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting packages contain different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server package contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spells of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to run as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Elect...

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a web page. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-based.
