There are different types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared website hosting - Advantages

The most suitable option for small web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per client substantially. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a package that will include the specifications your website actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Murray Host, offer a huge array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low grade account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account requires only a click.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A negative side of the shared hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific online portals, chiefly web storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that request complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both services typically provide root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting plans include diverse features depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server plan has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Electing...

Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper work of a site.
