There are various varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects

The most relevant choice for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user drastically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different amounts of data storage and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the features your website actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the web site. We, at EZ Hosting, offer a wide array of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Drawbacks

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain websites, chiefly online stores, demand applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not demand full root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally come with full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans involve diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server account has guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short stretches of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to handle as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still not sure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
