There are various types of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

Shared Hosting - Dividends

The most adequate alternative for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per user substantially. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of data space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will have the specifications your web site actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at Host2net LLC, offer a big variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-end account and you need more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Weaknesses

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Given web pages, particularly online shops, need software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software that does not demand full root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that require root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in absolutely the same way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments traditionally offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts include diverse features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting account includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short periods of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, some hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement dedicated server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Before You Opt...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable functioning of a site. Prior to selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect completely all the requirements for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
