There are different varieties of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

Shared Hosting - Virtues

The most suitable option for small size web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per user radically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, furnishing different amounts of server storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will have the resources your web portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at OneSource Host, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Minuses

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific websites, mainly web storefronts, need applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not need root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that need complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a precisely identical manner.


Both environments normally provide root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans contain diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS server hosting package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief stretches of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Before You Decide...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable performance of a website. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, investigate completely all the prerequisites for the web site to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
