There are different kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web page, you must access what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

Shared Website Hosting - Strong Points

The most proper choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per customer considerably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will include the specifications your web site actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at JB1 Hosting, offer a great assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low priced plan and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich account takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Certain web portals, mainly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that request complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it acts in an exactly identical way.


Both services commonly include server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages involve diverse specs depending on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS is simpler to manage as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by qualified users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable work of a website. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the requirements for the website to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure 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 glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
