There are different types of shared hosting services suitable for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you need to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The most suitable alternative for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting vendor to another, supplying different quotas of disk space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will offer the resources your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at D3 Web Host, offer a vast selection of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan takes just a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific web portals, mainly online shops, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not require full server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Servers

Both environments normally give root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages contain different characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting package has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief periods of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, given hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a website. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
