Which site hosting package will suit me best?

A composition by Virtual Dedicated Hosting.


There are various kinds of web hosting services appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the web space hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable hosting services for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.


Shared Hosting - Good Points

The most proper alternative for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per user markedly. There are various hosting solutions differing from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of data storage and monthly traffic, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will have the specifications your web page indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web portal. At Lonex, there is a vast array of shared web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-price plan and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan takes only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides

A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Specific sites, mainly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared web site hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not need full root-level access.


Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that request complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it functions in a precisely identical manner.


Virtual Private Servers

Both services generally include complete root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web page hosting packages, the virtual web server hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts sport diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server plan includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.


Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete web server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.


Before You Reach a Decision...

Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a web site. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, examine completely all the prerequisites for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based, and, one more thing, if you have already settled on a web hosting firm, the best choice would be to ask their client support team for advice as to which package exactly would be best for the proper performance of your site.
