There are various types of shared hosting packages suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Positive Sides

The most optimal option for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per person considerably. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will have the resources your web site in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Host2net Limited, offer a big collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Minuses

A negative side of the shared hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific websites, mainly web shops, demand applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install solely software programs that do not demand full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly offer complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts have diverse features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server account contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to handle as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by experienced clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Prior To Selecting...

Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
