Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most relevant option for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per individual markedly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a plan that will have the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Ultimate Web Hosting Services, offer an enormous variety of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account requires just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Certain web pages, particularly online shops, require software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software that does not require complete root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that request complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.


Both services typically offer full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts include different functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual server hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Electing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the stable functioning of a site. Prior to selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, study carefully all the requirements for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
