There are various varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

Shared Website Hosting - Advantages

The most appropriate alternative for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per customer noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will have the specs your web page really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at CIS Hosting, offer a large variety of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a less powerful package and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific web sites, chiefly web storefronts, request applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software applications that do not require full server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that need complete server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in strictly the same manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both environments typically give root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different specs depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the proper performance of a website. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the prerequisites for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
