The most suitable choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one company to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the features your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site.

If you commence with a cheaper package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given sites, particularly web stores, require applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that request root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in a precisely identical manner.

Both services typically include full root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting plans have different functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS web hosting package has guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
