There are various varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Perquisites

The most proper alternative for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per user considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk space and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the features your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Leave it to Lorrie, offer an immense choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you demand more features, moving to a more powerful package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some web sites, chiefly web shops, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that request complete server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both environments normally include server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans come with different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account offers guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Choose...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable performance of a web site. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the preconditions for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure 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 happy to help you and answer all your questions.
