There are various sorts of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The best option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per individual critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one provider to another, furnishing different quotas of data space and monthly traffic, different email quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will offer the resources your web site really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the web portal. We, at DreamHost, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost package and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Some web sites, particularly online stores, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not require complete server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that request complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both environments commonly give root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting packages come with diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to run as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Electing...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper performance of a web site.
