There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects

The most relevant alternative for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per user significantly. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the specs your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Hosting EG, offer a large assortment of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low grade account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better account involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific online portals, particularly web stores, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not demand full root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both environments normally offer complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting plans contain diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual hosting server package contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short stretches of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to manage as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the proper work of a online portal. Before picking a package, compare the pros and cons, study completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
