Best Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting services suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your web page, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Web Hosting - Perks
The most suitable option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per person noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting supplier to another, delivering different amounts of storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get an account that will provide the features your web site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at The Gulf Web Hosting Group Ltd., offer a great selection of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful account and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end account demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given web sites, above all web shops, request applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not require full root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that require complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in precisely the same way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both solutions usually give full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts comprise diverse features based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual hosting server account includes guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by competent customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, given web hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
