There are various sorts of shared web hosting packages suitable for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To select the most suitable shared web hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Hosting - Good Points

The most appropriate alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per user markedly. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will have the features your web portal really needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot host the web page. We, at viawebcloud, offer a big assortment of shared web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low-end package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account requires only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain web sites, mainly online shops, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not need server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that demand server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it works in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions commonly offer complete server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server accounts involve different specs depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server plan includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to cope with as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the proper work of a website. Before settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
