There are different varieties of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Positive Sides

The most relevant option for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per customer seriously. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will have the specs your site really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at cloud7, offer a huge collection of shared web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-cost account and you demand more features, moving to a more powerful account takes just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Downsides

A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific sites, particularly online stores, require applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not request full server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in an exactly identical way.

VPS Servers

Both platforms commonly come with full root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages have diverse specifications based on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual server hosting package contains guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the stable work of a web portal. Prior to choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the requirements for the web page to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
