There are various types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The best option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per user markedly. There are different web hosting packages varying from one host to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain an account that will provide the resources your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at DuoServers Web Hosting, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low priced plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a high-end package involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some web portals, above all online stores, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not need complete root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that require full root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it works in strictly the same way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments typically include full server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages comprise diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web site. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the preconditions for the site to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
