There are different sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Website Hosting - Upsides

The most relevant option for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one company to another, offering different amounts of data space and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a package that will offer the features your site indeed demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at North Vancouver Web Hosting, offer a huge selection of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package requires just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some web portals, above all web storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software applications that do not need full server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Servers

Both services generally give full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts involve different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual server web hosting package offers guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spells of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable work of a site. Prior to picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
