There are different types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites

The most appropriate alternative for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a plan that will have the specifications your web site actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at HSERVERS.com, offer a wide collection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a basic package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific online portals, especially online shops, require software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not demand root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that need complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it functions in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions normally give complete server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans contain diverse specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web hosting server package contains guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some web hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the proper work of a web site. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
