There are different varieties of shared web hosting plans appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate shared web hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

Shared Hosting - Positive Sides

The best choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user critically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will offer the specs your web portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at I'mHosting, offer a large selection of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-end plan and you require more features, moving to a more advanced plan requires just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Sides

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some websites, especially web stores, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not request complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in strictly the same way.


Both solutions commonly include complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server plans comprise diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS web server hosting package offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short spells of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the stable functioning of a online portal. Before picking an account, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the prerequisites for the web site to run properly, especially if it is script-powered.
