There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you must access what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most appropriate choice for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will have the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Papua Web Hosting, offer a big choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan demands just a click.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Specific web portals, chiefly web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software that does not demand complete server root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that need root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in exactly the same way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both solutions generally give full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages include different characteristics based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server hosting plan includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to administer as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Selecting the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper operation of a website. Before opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect completely all the prerequisites for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
