The most optimal option for small scale web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per user substantially. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will provide the resources your web page really needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Magnolia Sweets Web Hosting, offer a large choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you need more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan takes only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weak side of the shared hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given web portals, above all web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not require root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that demand complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally include root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve diverse specs based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting package includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short spans of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS is easier to cope with as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a web portal.
