There are different kinds of web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the best web hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Virtues

The most relevant option for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer substantially. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will provide the specs your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at STEERWEB, offer a great selection of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Some web pages, mainly web stores, demand applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not need full root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it runs in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Servers

Both solutions generally include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans sport diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS web server account contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a website. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the prerequisites for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based.
