There are different varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Positive Points

The most proper choice for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user substantially. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of web storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specs your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at idomainHOST, offer an immense array of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Some web pages, chiefly online storefronts, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software applications that do not need full root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that require root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions normally provide full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spells of time if there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Choose...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a site. Before choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
