There are various sorts of hosting services suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web site, you have to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Upsides
The most proper alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a package that will have the specifications your site actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the site. We, at Mujica Hosting, offer an enormous assortment of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a basic account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package involves only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages
A disadvantage of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Certain web sites, particularly web stores, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not request full server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that need server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it operates in a precisely identical way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally give full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts comprise different specs depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual server package contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by skilled users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
