There are different kinds of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your website, you need to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

Shared website hosting - Upsides

The most optimal option for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per customer seriously. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will include the specs your web site really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at WEB Hosting Company, offer a big variety of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a better package requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given online portals, mainly web storefronts, require applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not require full root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that require full server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in exactly the same way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both environments typically come with full root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS account includes guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief intervals of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper work of a website. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the preconditions for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-powered.
