There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you must estimate what server-side software programs it demands, 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 Points

The most proper alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per user noticeably. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will offer the features your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Elias Store, offer a great choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low grade package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain web portals, particularly web shops, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not request root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments commonly offer server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spans of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Select...

Selecting the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a site. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the web page to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
