There are different types of shared hosting services appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most relevant alternative for small size web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per user noticeably. There are different web hosting packages varying from one host to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your online portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the website. We, at Social City Net, offer an enormous choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low grade plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A weak side of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Some web portals, mainly web shops, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software applications that do not need full server root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that demand full root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in absolutely the same way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly include complete root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans comprise different specifications based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by proficient customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Deciding...

Settling on the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the stable functioning of a web portal. Before selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, review carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
