There are different sorts of shared hosting services appropriate for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most suitable option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per client noticeably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of web space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specs your web portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at ABC HOST, offer a wide choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a basic account and you need more system resources, upgrading to a better account involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Minuses

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Certain websites, mainly online storefronts, need applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software that does not need complete root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that request complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms usually come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages include different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by competent clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they carry out web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Deciding...

Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a web site. Before picking a package, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the prerequisites for the web page to operate properly, especially if it is script-based.
