There are different sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your site, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate choice for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per person markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of data storage and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will have the resources your web page in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Brandsnet, offer a large variety of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a better package involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some online portals, mainly online shops, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not need server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that request root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments normally include full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web server package contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for short stretches of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a web page.
