There are different types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you need to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

Shared website hosting - Assets

The best choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual drastically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting firm to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your web page actually requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Grab Bag Hosting, offer a wide collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-end package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a better account requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Some sites, mainly online shops, request software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand full server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that need full server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in exactly the same manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both solutions usually come with full root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise different characteristics based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package has guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to run as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Prior To Deciding...

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a website.
