There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Perks

The most suitable option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the features your site actually needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web site. We, at Green Lit Hosting, offer a wide assortment of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more system resources, moving to a better package demands just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Specific sites, chiefly web shops, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software that does not require full server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that require server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both platforms commonly include complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts sport diverse features based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual private web server hosting plan offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short intervals of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, some companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a online portal. Prior to selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to function properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
