There are various sorts of hosting packages appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your site, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Benefits

The most suitable option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user markedly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of web storage space and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will include the resources your web portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at NNUK.net, offer a huge assortment of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a less powerful account and you require more functionalities, moving to a high-end package takes just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific online portals, particularly online stores, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments generally include full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, given hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, study carefully all the requirements for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
