There are various varieties of shared web hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in regard to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant shared web hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Perks

The best alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per user markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one host to another, supplying different amounts of disk space and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a plan that will include the resources your web site really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Axnhost.com, offer an extensive array of shared web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low priced plan and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful account demands just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Sides

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Specific web portals, particularly web stores, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that require full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical way.

VPS Servers

Both services typically include full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server packages contain different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual server web hosting package includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short stretches of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper functioning of a web page. Before choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to work properly, especially if it is script-based.
