There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Benefits

The most appropriate option for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per person significantly. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will have the specs your website really requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at 3Hostin, offer a vast assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low priced plan and you require more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web portals, above all web shops, demand software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not demand complete server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it functions in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both services typically come with complete root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with diverse specs based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual server is easier to manage as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by proficient users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a site. Prior to choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
