There are different kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different websites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects
The most appropriate option for small size web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per individual considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one company to another, furnishing different amounts of data space and web traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will provide the specifications your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the site. We, at EUROLATINAMERICAhost, offer a wide choice of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low grade account and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Shortcomings
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Certain web pages, especially web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not require full root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in a precisely identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms traditionally include full root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans involve diverse features depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server hosting account has guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
