There are different kinds of web hosting plans suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant web hosting service for your online portal, you must calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Positive Sides

The most relevant choice for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user seriously. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one provider to another, furnishing different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the specifications your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at IKU, offer an immense assortment of web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a less powerful package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given sites, particularly web stores, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not require root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that request full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in a precisely identical manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments commonly include complete root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts have diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual web server plan includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper work of a website. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the requirements for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
