The most suitable alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per person critically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at Add Host, offer an immense choice of web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich package demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific web portals, above all online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not require root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both services generally come with complete root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server plans involve diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run web server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the stable operation of a site.
