There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.
Shared Hosting - Assets
The most adequate alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person seriously. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one host to another, delivering different quotas of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will offer the features your web page really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at Agra Web Hosting, offer a great selection of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more features, moving to a more advanced account requires only a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Specific online portals, mainly web shops, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that need full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments commonly include full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server account contains guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
