There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you must reckon what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Virtues

The most optimal option for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per client drastically. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of disk space and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the site. We, at Global Web Hosting, offer a vast variety of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low grade account and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful plan requires just a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific web portals, especially online shops, need software applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate solely software applications that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that demand full root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it operates in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments traditionally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts contain different specifications based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting account offers guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a site. Prior to choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the prerequisites for the site to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
