There are various varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Pluses

The most optimal option for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per person substantially. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will offer the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Hamilton Hosting, offer a great variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Certain web pages, particularly web storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install solely software that does not require full server root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that request root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in exactly the same manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services typically give full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts contain different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting package contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief stretches of time in case there are available 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 appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Prior To Opting...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web page. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect completely all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
