There are different sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Strong Sides

The most proper choice for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client markedly. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of web storage space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will provide the resources your website in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Hostomedia, offer a great assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low grade package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes only a click.

Shared website hosting - Shortcomings

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Given sites, particularly online stores, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand full server root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that need complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions normally give complete root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting accounts come with different functionalities based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting package offers guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, some hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a site. Before picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
