There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most suitable option for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of server storage space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will have the features your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Step2Rays Hosting, offer a wide choice of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-price account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better plan requires just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Given web portals, chiefly online shops, demand software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not require complete root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Servers

Both environments generally come with root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include diverse specifications based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private hosting server account includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief periods of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable work of a online portal. Before selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the preconditions for the web portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
