There are various sorts of shared web hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your site, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Strong Points

The most relevant alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will have the features your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the online portal. We, at BigBMC, offer a great choice of shared web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package involves just a click.

Shared Hosting - Drawbacks

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific websites, particularly online storefronts, need applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not request complete root-level access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that request root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both services generally come with full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different specifications depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web server hosting account includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to manage as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled users.

Dedicated Servers

However, some providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Before You Elect...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a online portal. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey completely all the requirements for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still not sure which is the best shared web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
