There are various sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Dividends

The most relevant option for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per user significantly. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different quotas of data space and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will include the features your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at HostExcel, offer a vast variety of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Specific sites, particularly web shops, need applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software that does not demand root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that require full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it runs in a precisely identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms normally provide complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting accounts involve different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short stretches of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to manage as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
