                                      Is shared server hosting the right option for you?
                                                               By Ketan Kulkarni

   Whether you are an individual, a businessperson or a work-from-home professional, owning a
website is an important part of your identity. These days, websites act as a hub of information. Your
web site is your window to the rest of the world. This explains the proliferation of websites you see on
the information highway today.

Once your web site is ready, your next concern is an appropriate hosting service. With different kinds
of hosting available, choosing the right hosting plan for your website may become a little confusing.
Shared hosting, dedicated hosting, managed hosting - terms such as these can set your head
spinning, particularly if you are new to the world of the Internet.

Shared server hosting runs on a UNIX based server, or any other multi-user operating system. Each
website on the Web server is given a unique account in the operating system.

Shared servers are highly recommended for those web owners who do not require very
high-performance or bandwidth. Generally, you can get an excellent shared Web hosting service for as
little as $5-$10 per month. Today, many excellent Web hosting companies even provide unlimited disk
space and bandwidth with their shared hosting plans.

Shared hosting comes with its share of convenient features. Many Web hosts offer powerful control
panels that make it easy for users to upload their files, check with statistics, add small functionalities
and handle other such small tasks. Shared hosting also provides you with a large number of database
management tools. For small businesses, there are provisions for lightweight e-commerce solutions.
You are also entitled to a number of free scripts that are parked on your server.

Since there are many websites running on a single server, these servers are maintained by a team of
hardcore IT professionals. Due to the tough competition in this field, these professionals make sure
that there were servers are in a condition to offer high-performance. This means that you can leave the
nitty-gritty of Web hosting to professionals while you concentrate on your business.

Shared Web hosting services are generally for the use of individuals and small businesses. As

businesses grow and require more resources and security, shared server hosting may no longer suit
them. Shared Web hosting services are slow when compared with dedicated hosting services, though
in the case of small to medium websites, the difference in speed is barely felt. Also, if your data
requires high security, then you must consider making use of a dedicated server. However, if you are
only starting out and your needs are quite limited, then a good shared hosting service will take care of
all your web needs.

Shared server hosting refers to an economic and convenient hosting service that makes use of a single
web server to host many websites. One high-performance web server may host thousands of sites.
Generally, all the websites hosted on a particular server receive limited web resources.

The advantages of Shared server hosting are many. The first and foremost among these is the cost
factor. Since multiple web sites are making use of the resources provided by a single server, shared
hosting becomes very economical.

                       Web Hosting: Shared or Dedicated - Which Should You Choose?
                                                              By Russ Mate

Web Hosting: Shared or Dedicated - Which Should You Choose?
 by: Russ Mate

Before you begin your search for a web host you should first determine whether you need shared web
hosting or dedicated web hosting.

A shared web hosting account is an account on a web server that hosts other shared accounts. The
number of accounts on one shared server can vary widely; some servers host a few hundred, while
others have thousands of sites hosted on one server. Hosting your website on a shared server is a
workable solution for many small businesses, as shared hosting accounts are priced much lower than
dedicated servers. Shared web hosting accounts have limited access to the core administrative
functions of the server. Most web hosting companies offer comprehensive technical support for users
of shared hosting plans. Complete technical support is usually included in the price of your account

A dedicated server is usually dedicated to one, or just a few websites, usually for the sole use by one
company. The cost of a dedicated server is higher than that of a shared hosting account. With a
dedicated server, you have access to the core administrative functions of the server. With most
dedicated server plans offered by hosting companies, you're pretty much on your own where technical
support is concerned. If you don't have an IT staff or a server administrator to provide support, you
may want to find a person to help you manage your dedicated server. Many hosting companies that
offer dedicated server plans also offer "per issue" support, meaning that you'll pay a certain amount,
usually an hourly fee, for technical support issues. Some dedicated server plans have optional "support
tickets" that you can purchase in advance.

Another option is what's called a "managed dedicated" hosting plan. With a managed dedicated plan,
you get a dedicated server and the hosting company also provides comprehensive support like you
usually find in a shared hosting plan. This is a good alternative for companies that don't have an IT
staff or a server administrator and don't want to get involved at all in the technical aspects of running a
server. The price for a managed dedicated server is usually higher than for an unmanaged dedicated
server plan as you're getting technical support included.

Whatever type of web hosting plan you choose, make sure that the plan you've chosen fits your needs.
