There are different types of web hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Privileges

The most relevant choice for small scale web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per client seriously. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of storage space and web traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will include the specs your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Platinum Web Services, offer a vast choice of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain web pages, chiefly web stores, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not request root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that need complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually provide root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages involve diverse specifications based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual web server account includes guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short periods of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to cope with as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Prior To Selecting...

Selecting the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the web site to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
