There are various types of shared web hosting accounts suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most proper shared web hosting service for your web site, you must reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

Shared website hosting - Strong Points

The most suitable choice for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the specifications your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the site. We, at HostPlenty.com, offer a great variety of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a cheaper plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points

A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific online portals, above all online storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not need full root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in strictly the same way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions usually offer complete server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages contain diverse specs based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS server web hosting package contains guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for short intervals of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to cope with as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a web portal. Prior to picking an account, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
