The most optimal alternative for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per person substantially. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the specs your online portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Advantage IT Solutions, offer an extensive variety of website hosting plans appropriate for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you demand more features, moving to a more advanced plan takes only a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Signs

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Certain web pages, chiefly web stores, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not demand full server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that demand full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it functions in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both platforms commonly provide full root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server plans come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spans of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
