There are different types of shared web hosting solutions suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal shared web hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Positive Aspects

The most relevant choice for small sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user drastically. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of web space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a package that will include the specs your online portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the online portal. We, at SOS Web Development, offer an enormous variety of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a better account requires just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Weak Sides

A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Specific web sites, chiefly online shops, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not demand root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that demand complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms usually include full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages sport different characteristics based on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spells of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Opt...

Selecting the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
