There are various kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most proper option for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per customer radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will include the specs your online portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at 3rd Coast Domains, offer a vast collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-price plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan takes only a click.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Certain websites, especially online stores, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software that does not request full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in strictly the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both services normally offer full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account offers guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Still, some web hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server management operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Deciding...

Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the proper functioning of a site. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, survey carefully all the prerequisites for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
