There are various varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the best shared hosting service for your web site, you must judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects

The most suitable alternative for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per client critically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will include the specifications your web site really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Steele Design Studio limited, offer a great choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific online portals, chiefly online shops, demand applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in exactly the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both services typically provide full root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server packages contain diverse functionalities based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web hosting server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Before You Choose...

Settling on the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the proper work of a web page. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the requirements for the website to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
