There are different types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.

Shared Website Hosting - Pluses

The most optimal option for small size web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per person substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will include the resources your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Domains Depot, offer an immense choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low priced plan and you require more features, moving to a more advanced account involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Given web sites, particularly online storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that need complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Web Servers

Both environments commonly include root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans sport different functionalities based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual web server account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Deciding...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the stable work of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the preconditions for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
