There are different varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

Shared Web Hosting - Pluses

The best choice for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and monthly traffic, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a package that will include the features your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at Ekumart Hosting, offer a large collection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web pages, mainly online shops, demand applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting solution, you can install only software that does not need root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that demand full root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in exactly the same way.


Both services typically include full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts come with different specs based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual server package has guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short intervals of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the stable functioning of a online portal. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the preconditions for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered. And if you are still not sure which is the best shared hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales representatives will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
