There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

Shared Hosting - Strong Sides

The most optimal alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per user critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one host to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will have the resources your web site really demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Wise Host Network, offer an enormous selection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a less powerful package and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end plan demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Shortcomings

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Certain web sites, especially web shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software platforms that do not demand full server root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that need full root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in exactly the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments commonly come with root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS hosting server plan includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spells of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Before You Elect...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a site. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
