The most relevant option for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per person critically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, supplying different quotas of web space and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain an account that will include the specifications your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at JB1 Hosting, offer a great choice of web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a cheaper package and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given websites, especially online shops, demand applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not demand root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that demand root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both services normally provide root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages contain diverse specs depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for brief spells of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
