There are various varieties of hosting services suitable for different websites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
The most relevant choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per person radically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will have the specifications your site really needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at DNMark.com, offer a big choice of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Given web pages, mainly online shops, need applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not demand root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that demand root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in exactly the same manner.
Both environments typically include complete server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts sport different characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server package has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief intervals of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to run as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
Before You Decide...
Selecting the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable work of a web site. Prior to picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-powered.
