The most appropriate alternative for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per individual radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will include the specifications your online portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Domain Control Network, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low grade plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a better package takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Given web sites, especially online storefronts, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not need full root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that demand root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it works in strictly the same way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both services usually come with full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with different specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private hosting server package includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief spells of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to handle as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.

Dedicated Servers

However, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
