There are different varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Privileges

The most appropriate choice for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per individual radically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will offer the specs your web page really demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the website. We, at Wise Host Network, offer a great assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-end account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan takes just a click.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific online portals, mainly web stores, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that request complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services typically provide full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages involve different specs based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed data storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by qualified users.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.

Before You Opt...

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web site. Before settling on an account, compare the pros and cons, survey completely all the prerequisites for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still not sure which 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.
