There are different varieties of shared hosting packages suitable for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Positive Points

The best option for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per user significantly. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different quotas of server space and bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a plan that will provide the specs your site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Wight Hosting, offer a big assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you require more features, moving to a better plan requires just a click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Points

A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given websites, particularly online storefronts, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not request root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that demand root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in precisely the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments traditionally come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans comprise different functionalities based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting account has guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief stretches of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to tackle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by practiced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Prior to settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales representatives will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
