There are various sorts of shared hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your online portal, you must calculate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Pluses

The most suitable choice for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per user considerably. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of data storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a package that will have the specifications your web page indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at FoxWebTools, offer a wide choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-end plan and you require more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Certain websites, above all web storefronts, require applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not request full root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that request complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments traditionally include full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts include diverse specs based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private hosting server plan has guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.

Before You Elect...

Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a website. Prior to choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the requirements for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
