The most suitable alternative for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of server storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your web page actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Consultingforge Hosting Ltd., offer a wide selection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you demand more features, moving to a high-end package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web pages, mainly web storefronts, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not request server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that demand complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally include full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages include different specs based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual hosting server account contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief intervals of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete dedicated web server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
