The most adequate alternative for small scale online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per individual seriously. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for an account that will have the specs your online portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Papua Web Hosting, offer an immense assortment of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a high-end package requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Inconveniences

A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given web pages, particularly web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in strictly the same way.


Both environments commonly give complete root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server packages come with different functionalities based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, certain companies provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
