There are many different kinds of hosting solutions out there that are designed to accommodate the plethora of unique websites available on the internet. Every website demanding certain system resources and tools from their hosting provider. To pick the best hosting service for your site, you must evaluate what server side software programs it requires. How many daily visits you expect when you go live, and how fast you plan on growing. There will be other demands that will need to be addressed as your site becomes more popular.
Shared web hosting - Positive Points
The most adequate choice for small websites with a few hundred to about a thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of web space and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a plan that will offer the specifications your web portal actually requires. You can pay a small amount to get your site up and running quickly and effectively. FastWebBuilder.com offers a big assortment of hosting packages suitable for all personal or small business websites that are serious about their hosting requirements. Fast Web Builder even includes for free pre-installed scripts for such open source platforms as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal and WordPress. If you begin with a starter package and find that you need more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced account can be done with one click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Sides
Although shared hosting, also known as cloud hosting, is an excellent solution for about 90% of all websites, there are some down sides. One disadvantage of the cloud hosting environment is that the hosting servers are locked down with specific software that may not be allowed to change. Depending on the website, particularly custom storefronts that require special software applications to be installed on the server for them to run. On a cloud hosting service you do not have root access and can only use the software and tools the hosting company allows on the shared environment.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that need full root access to the server, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you want to consider are a VPS solution or a dedicated server package. A Virtual Private Server, or VPS, is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments will provide full server root access and can be rebooted via an easy to use software platform managed by the user, without the need to speak to the web hosting company. Like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting packages contain diverse specifications based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS hosting package offers guaranteed amount of storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals in case there is a need for more available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware the package comes with. Each server can be upgraded by altering or adding hardware components. A virtual private server is simpler to administer because it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, install software applications, explore server stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex. Due to its complexity, such a package should be considered once you have advanced further with your website skills.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Quality hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they administer dedicated server management operations instead of the client. FastWebBuilder.com offers a managed solution that can be included in your dedicated hosting package.
