There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per user considerably. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your web site in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the website. We, at XS Web Sites, offer a big assortment of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a less powerful package and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful package demands just a click.

Shared Hosting - Negative Points

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some online portals, mainly web shops, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that request root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it operates in precisely the same manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally provide root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts involve different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server account has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief intervals of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to run as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the stable work of a web page.
