There are different sorts of web hosting services suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Strong Sides

The best choice for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per client drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one host to another, offering different amounts of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will offer the resources your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Hermes Host, offer an enormous array of web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better package involves only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Certain online portals, particularly web shops, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not request root-level access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments normally give server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans contain different characteristics depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief periods of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained users.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, some web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the stable operation of a online portal. Prior to selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, appraise carefully all the preconditions for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
