There are various types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web page, you need to access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most suitable alternative for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per customer radically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your web site indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Holt Technology Corporation, offer a large collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a less powerful package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some sites, particularly online stores, require applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that need root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually include complete root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans include different specifications based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting package offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper functioning of a web site. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
