Which site hosting service will be most suitable for me?

There are different kinds of web hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the website hosting environment they require. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared Site Hosting - Positive Signs

The most relevant option for small size web portals with several hundred or web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per person critically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one company to another, supplying different amounts of web storage and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will have the features your web site actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the online portal. At AIDA Host, there is a large collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you require more system resources, moving to a high-end package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared Webspace Hosting - Weak Points

A drawback of the shared web space hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Certain online portals, above all web stores, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not require full root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both environments usually offer complete root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts include diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manipulate as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Servers

Still, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Prior To Selecting...

Selecting the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable work of a web page. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-based, and, one more thing, if you have already picked a hosting provider, the best you could do would be to ask their support team for an opinion as to which package exactly would be best for the stable functioning of your site.
