There are various varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web page, you have to access what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Signs

The most optimal alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per individual radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, supplying different quotas of web storage space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will include the features your web portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Genius Cloud Hosting, offer an immense array of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-price plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a better account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A disadvantage of the shared hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some online portals, above all web stores, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software that does not need complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that need complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms normally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans involve different specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web server account offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief intervals of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to manage as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable performance of a online portal. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, survey completely all the prerequisites for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
