There are various varieties of shared web hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To select the most optimal shared web hosting service for your web page, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Strong Sides

The most proper alternative for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your web site indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at HotDogJoe, offer a large array of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Specific online portals, chiefly online shops, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not request full server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that need root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.


Both solutions typically include server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting plans comprise different functionalities based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web hosting server package has guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they run web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the preconditions for the web site to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
