There are various varieties of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Strong Points

The most optimal alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting corporation to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a package that will include the specifications your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the web site. We, at xhosters, offer a great variety of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low priced account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a better account demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Specific sites, especially web shops, demand applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not need complete root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both environments typically come with root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans sport diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS hosting server plan has guaranteed data storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spans of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to cope with as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

Still, given hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a online portal. Before selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, appraise completely all the preconditions for the web site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales representatives will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
