There are different types of shared hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

Shared Website Hosting - Perks

The most appropriate choice for small scale online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per person seriously. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at MYWEBS, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a basic account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given online portals, particularly web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not need full root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Servers

Both services typically give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages sport different characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual hosting server package offers guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable operation of a web page. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure 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 happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
