The most proper option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one host to another, offering different quotas of disk space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will include the resources your web portal really demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at PC Helper, offer a huge choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Specific web sites, above all online shops, require software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not demand full server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in a precisely identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions commonly provide full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans have diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web server package offers guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spells of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to administer as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
