There are various varieties of hosting services appropriate for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Points
The most adequate choice for small web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per user considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, offering different quotas of hard disk storage space and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a package that will include the specifications your online portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Maxima Host, offer a vast collection of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-price account and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Points
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given web pages, mainly online stores, demand applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not request server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that need full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it works in absolutely the same way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions usually give complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans come with different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server hosting package offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to handle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
