There are different varieties of shared web hosting plans suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects

The most relevant alternative for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per individual significantly. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will offer the features your website actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at Simmetry Communications, offer a vast variety of shared web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you require more resources, moving to a better plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Signs

A disadvantage of the shared hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Some websites, mainly web stores, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not require root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that request complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Servers

Both solutions commonly give complete server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server accounts sport different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spells of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they carry out dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Before You Choose...

Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper work of a web page. Before picking an account, weigh the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
