There are various kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you must estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared Hosting - Benefits

The most optimal option for small sized online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual critically. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of web storage and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will provide the features your web site in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at 121Direct, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-cost package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich package takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A negative aspect 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 additional software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly online shops, require software applications to be available on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand complete server root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in a precisely identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both solutions normally include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server web hosting account contains guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief intervals of time if there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to handle as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by competent clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a web portal. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the requirements for the site to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
