There are different varieties of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Advantages

The best choice for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of web space and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a plan that will have the features your web site indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at surfhosting.eu, offer a great selection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a basic package and you demand more features, moving to a high-end account demands only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given sites, chiefly online shops, demand software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not request full root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both environments usually come with full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server packages contain different features depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS hosting plan contains guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short intervals of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
