There are various kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Positive Points

The most adequate option for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per client markedly. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of web storage and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will have the features your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Smooth Web Hosting, offer a great variety of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end account and you demand more resources, moving to a better package requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain websites, chiefly online stores, demand applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that demand root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in a precisely identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both services traditionally include full root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts include diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server plan contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief intervals of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Elect...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the proper performance of a site. Before settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
