Best Web Hosting
There are different sorts of web hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To select the best web hosting service for your web portal, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Strong Points
The most relevant alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per individual noticeably. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the web site. We, at Bold Alternative, offer a great choice of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-end account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain websites, especially online shops, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand root-level access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that request complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in precisely the same way.
Both solutions usually offer root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts include different specifications depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual web server plan offers guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short stretches of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to manage as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
Yet, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
