There are various kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Virtues

The most suitable choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per person substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, furnishing different quotas of server space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will offer the specs your website indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Mad Host, offer a vast array of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low grade package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better account involves only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Given websites, chiefly web shops, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that request full server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it runs in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms commonly include full root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans comprise different characteristics based on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short intervals of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to administer as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can influence the proper work of a online portal. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the prerequisites for the web page to perform 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 representatives will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
