There are various varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your site, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Benefits

The most relevant option for small size web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer seriously. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of disk space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for an account that will have the resources your web site in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at Domain400, offer a huge variety of web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-end plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some online portals, especially online shops, need applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not request full root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a strictly identical way.

VPS Servers

Both platforms generally include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server plans sport diverse functionalities based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS account offers guaranteed server storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short periods of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Choose...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can influence the proper functioning of a web portal. Before selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the prerequisites for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
