There are various kinds of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate shared web hosting service for your site, you need to access what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

Shared Hosting - Positive Sides

The best alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will offer the specs your web portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at 7-24 Web Hosting, offer an enormous choice of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given sites, above all online shops, request applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software that does not demand complete root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that need complete server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Servers

Both solutions generally include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting packages include different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting account offers guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Yet, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Select...

Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a site. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, examine carefully all the prerequisites for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which is the best shared web hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
