There are various kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Assets

The most proper option for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per user considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a package that will have the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Step2Ray's Website Hosting, offer a great variety of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-end package and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful plan demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web sites, chiefly web stores, require applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that demand root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in precisely the same way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly give full root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages contain diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting account has guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Selecting the top hosting package is important as it can influence the proper operation of a web page. Before settling on an account, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the requirements for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-based.
