The most adequate option for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per client drastically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, providing different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for an account that will provide the resources your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Host2net LLC, offer an enormous choice of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given web pages, especially web storefronts, require applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that request root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

VPS Servers

Both platforms usually include full root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server accounts have different specs based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS server hosting account includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by proficient customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
