Best Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting solutions suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To select the most relevant web hosting service for your site, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Good Points
The most suitable alternative for small size sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per individual noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will have the features your site indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at iRed Hosting, offer an extensive choice of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific websites, especially web stores, need software applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software applications that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that require server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally provide full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages comprise different features depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual hosting server package offers guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to handle as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, given web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
Before You Decide...
Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can influence the proper operation of a site. Before choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
