Best Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting services appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your site, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Pluses
The most suitable choice for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per individual drastically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one provider to another, offering different amounts of storage space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will have the specs your web site really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at Xen Effect Studio, offer a huge array of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced package requires only a click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A negative aspect of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific websites, mainly web storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not require root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that demand full server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services typically give root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages have diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS account offers guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Prior To Electing...
Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper work of a web portal. Before opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the requirements for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
