There are different types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

Shared web hosting - Strong Sides

The most proper alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per customer considerably. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk space and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the resources your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Socalwebs Domains and Hosting, offer a great collection of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more system resources, moving to a better plan takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Some websites, mainly web shops, request applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not need server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that need complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in a precisely identical way.


Both environments normally include full root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts sport diverse features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server account contains guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to administer as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
