There are various types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to judge what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Sides

The most appropriate alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per individual radically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of disk space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will have the specifications your website actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Christian Web Hosting, offer a wide assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a basic plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Minuses

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, especially web storefronts, request applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software platforms that do not require root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Servers

Both services generally come with full root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual web server plan offers guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spells of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.

Prior To Opting...

Picking the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web page. Prior to opting for an account, compare the pros and cons, investigate completely all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-based.
