Which hosting solution will be most suitable for me?

There are various sorts of web hosting plans suitable for different sites in relation to the resources or the website hosting environment they require. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Assets

The most suitable alternative for small sized web pages with several hundred or sng, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per user markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of web space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a package that will provide the features your web portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the website. At BitLife Host, there is a big array of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-price plan and you require more system resources, moving to a high-end package takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Weak Sides

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly online storefronts, demand applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web page hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not request complete server root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that request full server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments usually come with root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private web server hosting and the dedicated hosting plans include different specs depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS plan includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to handle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the proper work of a website. Before opting for an account, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered, and, last but not least, if you have already selected a web hosting supplier, the best thing to do would be to ask their support team for an opinion as to which package exactly would be best for the proper operation of your web portal.
