There are various sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Sides

The most proper alternative for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per person critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain an account that will have the specs your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Brandsnet, offer an immense selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you need more features, moving to a more advanced account requires only a click.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific web pages, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not need server root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both platforms traditionally include full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages have different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account includes guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is easier to cope with as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated web server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Before You Elect...

Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web site. Before selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, review carefully all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
