There are various varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most relevant option for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per individual considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for an account that will provide the features your web site actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Foxsch Hosting, offer a vast selection of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you need more resources, moving to a more advanced account involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Some sites, above all web stores, request applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting account, you can install solely software that does not demand root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Servers

Both services usually provide complete server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts come with different specifications based on what the web hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spells of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper work of a web portal. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the preconditions for the site to work properly, especially if it is script-powered.
