The most optimal choice for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per user substantially. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will offer the specs your website actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at PrincetonStar, offer a wide selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you need more resources, moving to a better plan takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific online portals, above all online storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not demand complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that demand server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both platforms usually provide root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts come with different features based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual server plan offers guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short stretches of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient clients.
However, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
