There are various types of web hosting services appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most appropriate alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per client considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will include the specs your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Tierra Hosting, offer a wide collection of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-end account and you require more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan involves just a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some web pages, especially online stores, require applications to be installed on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install solely software that does not demand complete server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that need complete root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in exactly the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both services typically provide complete server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server hosting plan has guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spells of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Prior To Selecting...

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the proper work of a web portal. Prior to picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the preconditions for the web page to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
