There are different varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides

The most adequate alternative for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per person significantly. There are different web hosting plans differing from one company to another, providing different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the online portal. We, at HostSolutionz, offer a huge array of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you demand more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich package demands only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific web pages, chiefly web storefronts, demand applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it operates in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally offer root-level access and can be restarted via a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include different characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting package includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the proper functioning of a online portal. Prior to opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales representatives will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
