There are different types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Benefits

The most adequate option for small size web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per person radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of web space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at HarryHost, offer a great choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a basic plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web sites, above all web storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not demand full server root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that request full root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services traditionally offer complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages include diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server web hosting plan has guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Before You Choose...

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable operation of a web portal.
