There are various types of shared hosting packages suitable for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Pluses

The most relevant alternative for small sized sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per user noticeably. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one provider to another, offering different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will include the specifications your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at Creative Web Host, offer a large choice of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you demand more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich account takes just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific web pages, particularly web stores, need software applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software that does not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that require server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both environments normally offer root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans contain different specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server plan has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short periods of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by skilled clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some providers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a site. Prior to settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
