There are various varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The best choice for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per customer drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one host to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will have the specifications your website really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Hitash Consults Limited, offer a big selection of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a basic package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides

A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain online portals, mainly web shops, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not require server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it works in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services commonly include full server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans come with diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS account has guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief intervals of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to tackle as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
