There are different types of shared hosting services appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Virtues

The most adequate choice for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per customer substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of web space and monthly traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will provide the specs your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Host54, offer a large assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced account and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end plan requires only a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Some web pages, chiefly web stores, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not need full root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that request full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments usually include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans involve diverse specifications based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual hosting server plan has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by practiced users.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Choosing...

Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable work of a website. Prior to choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
