There are different types of shared hosting plans suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects

The best choice for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per client seriously. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order an account that will have the features your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Darkforged Services, offer an enormous variety of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some online portals, particularly web storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not need full root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that request full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions generally give full root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server packages include diverse specs depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS web server package has guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short intervals of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a web portal. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still not sure which one is the best shared hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
