There are various varieties of hosting services appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the best hosting service for your web page, you must access what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Assets

The most adequate choice for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per customer drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the resources your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Elias Hosting, offer a large variety of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low grade account and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some web portals, mainly web stores, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that request root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both environments normally give root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts involve diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS web hosting server package has guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short stretches of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to administer as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by skilled users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the proper work of a web portal. Before settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the preconditions for the website to run properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still not sure which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
