There are various types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

Shared website hosting - Good Points

The most appropriate choice for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per user radically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, supplying different amounts of server storage space and monthly traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will include the resources your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at ProWeb Hosting Asia, offer a great collection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Certain web pages, above all web shops, need applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need full root-level access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that need full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments normally give full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief stretches of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they implement server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Deciding...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable functioning of a online portal. Before opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the web page to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
