Which hosting solution will benefit me most?

There are different types of web hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

Shared Web Hosting - Assets

The most suitable choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will include the features your web site really demands. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web page. At 100WebSpace, there is a vast selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you require more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich account requires only a click.

Shared Web Site Hosting - Negative Aspects

A disadvantage of the shared webspace hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Specific online portals, particularly web storefronts, demand applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not request full root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that request root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in exactly the same way.


Both solutions usually offer full server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web site hosting accounts, the private virtual server and the dedicated web hosting server plans involve diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS account offers guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief spans of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Before You Decide...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the proper functioning of a web page. Prior to picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to run properly, especially if it is script-based, and, one more thing, if you have already picked a web hosting vendor, the best choice would be to ask their client support staff for a recommendation as to which plan exactly would be best for the stable performance of your website.
