There are various sorts of hosting solutions suitable for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Strong Sides

The most relevant alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per individual substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of web storage and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will provide the specs your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Delva Hosting, offer an enormous array of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you require more resources, moving to a better account demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Downsides

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some online portals, mainly web stores, demand software applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install only software that does not need complete server root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that need server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in strictly the same way.


Both services commonly come with full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages have different features based on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief intervals of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to run as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Before You Reach a Decision...

Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a website. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to run properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which one is the best hosting service for you, check with our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
