There are different kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

The most adequate choice for small sized websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per client markedly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will include the resources your online portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the web portal. We, at TextSocial Hosting Services, offer a vast variety of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a basic plan and you need more resources, moving to a more advanced package requires only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects

A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given web pages, above all web shops, demand software applications to be installed on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software programs that do not request server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that require complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both platforms typically give complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server accounts involve diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server plan offers guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spells of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
