There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Positive Points

The most appropriate alternative for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per person substantially. There are various web hosting plans differing from one host to another, supplying different amounts of server storage space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will offer the features your online portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Freelance Web Hosting, offer an extensive array of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given web sites, chiefly online stores, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not request full root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms usually provide full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages come with different features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server account has guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable functioning of a web site. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based.
