There are various types of shared hosting services appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

Shared website hosting - Strong Sides

The most optimal option for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will offer the specs your web portal really requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Professional Hosting Services, offer a huge selection of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-price account and you require more resources, upgrading to a better account involves just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Some websites, especially online storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software that does not demand server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that need root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in an exactly identical manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions generally include server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages include different specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting server plan offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short intervals of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation 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 manage as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by competent clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the proper operation of a web page. Prior to selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the web site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based.
