The most proper choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of web space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will provide the specs your web site really demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the web page. We, at Grab Bag Hosting, offer an enormous array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you require more features, upgrading to a high-end plan requires only a click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Certain sites, mainly online stores, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software programs that do not require full server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an absolutely identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both environments generally give root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans include different functionalities depending on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting package includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
