There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Perquisites

The most optimal option for small sized web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per individual considerably. There are different web hosting packages varying from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a package that will have the features your website really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at Australia Raidlayer, offer an extensive collection of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you need more features, moving to a more powerful package demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Given web sites, particularly web shops, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that need complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally come with full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with diverse specs depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS hosting plan has guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spans 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 using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the web site to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still in doubt which one is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to assist you and answer all your questions.
