There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Upsides

The most appropriate alternative for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual significantly. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will provide the specs your site in fact needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Launch Your Site Today, offer an immense collection of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-end plan and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful account requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some online portals, mainly web storefronts, demand applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services typically give root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS plan contains guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by competent customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Before You Opt...

Selecting the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a site. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the preconditions for the web page to operate properly, especially if it is script-powered. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, check with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
