The best alternative for small sized web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per individual noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a package that will offer the specs your online portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the online portal. We, at TiaMicA, offer a large array of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-cost package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced account takes just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Downsides
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some web sites, particularly online shops, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software that does not demand complete server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that require full server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions commonly offer full root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages comprise different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief intervals of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to administer as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Nonetheless, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
