There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the best shared hosting service for your website, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most adequate option for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per individual noticeably. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a package that will include the features your online portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at InfiniTech, offer a wide selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a cheaper package and you need more features, moving to a better account takes just a click.

Shared Hosting - Weaknesses

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Some web pages, particularly web stores, request software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software applications that do not demand root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both environments typically come with server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server packages contain different features depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual hosting server plan offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to handle as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
