There are various sorts of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared Hosting - Positive Sides

The best option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per customer considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specs your online portal indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web page. We, at Core Web Hosts, offer a large variety of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-price account and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich package takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific web pages, chiefly web stores, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not require server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that demand full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments generally offer full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server accounts have diverse features depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting package has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Before You Decide...

Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web portal. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the prerequisites for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
