There are various kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Aspects

The most proper choice for small scale sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per individual substantially. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one company to another, supplying different amounts of web storage and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will provide the resources your web site really needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at PromoterHost Web Hosting, offer a great choice of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low priced account and you require more features, upgrading to a high-end account takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Given online portals, mainly web stores, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software that does not need full root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that require full root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions commonly include server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans contain different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting package includes guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spans of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper performance of a web page. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the requirements for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
