Quality Shared Hosting
There are various varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you have to judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

The most proper alternative for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the specs your web portal indeed demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Hostiser, offer an immense collection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a basic account and you need more functionalities, moving to a better package takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Given sites, especially web stores, need software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not demand complete server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that demand complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in a precisely identical way.
Both environments typically give root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages come with diverse specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS hosting server account offers guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spans of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
