There are different sorts of shared hosting packages appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Good Points

The most suitable alternative for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per user significantly. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of web space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will provide the features your site indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Althanium MM, offer a big assortment of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low grade account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a better package takes only a click.

Shared Hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Given sites, particularly web stores, need applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that require full server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

VPS Servers

Both services commonly include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts comprise diverse features based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Servers

However, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the stable operation of a website. Before opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the requirements for the site to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
