There are different types of shared web hosting services appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To choose the best shared web hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Positive Sides

The most appropriate choice for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per person noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for an account that will offer the resources your web site indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Lufdy, offer an extensive choice of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-end account and you require more system resources, moving to a better account requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain sites, above all web stores, request applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software programs that do not require complete root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in precisely the same way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly provide full server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server plans involve different specs depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server plan has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by proficient users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Prior To Electing...

Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a site. Prior to choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, survey completely all the prerequisites for the site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
