There are different varieties of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Upsides

The most optimal alternative for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per client substantially. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of data storage and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Blue Ribbon Hosting, offer a large collection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Negative Signs

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Some web pages, especially online storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that request server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both services usually come with full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts include different specs based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS is simpler to manipulate as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Selecting the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a website. Before picking a package, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered. 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 reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
