There are various types of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you need to judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per user seriously. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of disk storage and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase an account that will provide the resources your web portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the site. We, at eSolution Hosting, offer a great collection of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-cost account and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Specific web portals, particularly web storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full root-level access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that require server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms normally offer server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server packages sport diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they run web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
