There are various varieties of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Benefits

The most proper option for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per user critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of data space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specifications your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the web portal. We, at PC Helper, offer a huge collection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package requires only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides

A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Certain web portals, especially web stores, request software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not need full server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that request complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in strictly the same way.


Both services usually include root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts include diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time if there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to manipulate as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Elect...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the stable functioning of a website. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the requirements for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
