The most adequate option for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per individual considerably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk space and bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will include the specifications your website actually demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the site. We, at Stable disks Hosting, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low priced package and you need more resources, moving to a high-end plan requires only a click.

Shared Hosting - Drawbacks

A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Some sites, mainly online storefronts, need applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that request complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in an absolutely identical manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually include complete root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server packages comprise different features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting account includes guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spans of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
