There are various types of shared web hosting packages appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared web hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be satisfied.

Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites

The most optimal alternative for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per person radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will have the features your web page really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Ozcool Net, offer a wide variety of shared web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you require more features, moving to a better plan takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Given web portals, particularly web stores, demand applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not demand server root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that need complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms generally give complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server packages involve diverse features based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server package has guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, certain hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Electing...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a site. Prior to opting for an account, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-based.
