The best choice for small web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per person substantially. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of web storage and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will offer the features your web site really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at uesecloud, offer an enormous assortment of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low grade package and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich package requires only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given online portals, chiefly online stores, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not require full root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions typically include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans come with different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient customers.
Yet, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
