There are various types of shared hosting services suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Privileges

The best choice for small sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per person critically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will provide the features your web portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at hostingdad, offer a vast collection of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan demands only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Minuses

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Specific web pages, above all online storefronts, need applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not request full root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that need full server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly include full root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS hosting server plan has guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spells of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can influence the proper performance of a web site. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
