The most optimal option for small web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per person radically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will offer the specifications your web page really demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at St8forward Hosting, offer a big selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end package demands just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Minuses

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Given web portals, especially online stores, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software applications that do not need root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in precisely the same way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions commonly offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting plans come with diverse specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting account has guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief intervals of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable operation of a web page.
