There are different sorts of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web page, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

The most suitable alternative for small web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per client noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of server space and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get an account that will have the specs your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Web Lakay, offer a huge selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-end plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a high-end package requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A negative aspect of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Specific websites, chiefly web shops, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not need full root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that request server root access, or if your web 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 private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in exactly the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally offer root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages include diverse specs depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS server hosting package has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spells of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to tackle as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform dedicated web server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting package is essential as it can have an effect on the stable work of a web page. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, survey carefully all the requirements for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
