There are different varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Upsides

The most adequate option for small sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer noticeably. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will provide the features your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Domain Control Network, offer a wide choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful package demands just a click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Some web sites, particularly web shops, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software that does not require full root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that need root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in precisely the same way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both environments generally give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans involve diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private hosting server package offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, some companies provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the proper work of a web page. Prior to picking an account, compare the pros and cons, study completely all the preconditions for the web site to operate properly, especially if it is script-powered. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, check with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
