There are different kinds of shared hosting services appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Dividends

The best alternative for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per client noticeably. There are different web hosting packages differing from one company to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will provide the specs your website really requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small account that cannot host the website. We, at Mikeldomains, offer a wide collection of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low grade plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Some web sites, above all online stores, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not request full root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that require complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions usually provide full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server packages come with different features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
