There are various sorts of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the best shared hosting service for your web site, you must judge what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

Shared Hosting - Perquisites

The most optimal choice for small sized websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of server storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will provide the specs your online portal in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at lumenhost, offer a wide collection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-end plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific online portals, above all web storefronts, require applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software programs that do not need full root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that request full root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in strictly the same way.


Both environments typically give root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages have different specs based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to cope with as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated hosting services where they implement dedicated web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the proper operation of a website. Prior to picking a package, compare the pros and cons, examine completely all the prerequisites for the web site to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
