There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most suitable alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per customer markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a plan that will offer the features your web site really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Host Volcano, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some sites, above all online storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not require full root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in strictly the same manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms normally come with root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans contain different functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, some companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Prior To Deciding...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable operation of a website. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
