Quality Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.

The best choice for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per customer noticeably. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, supplying different amounts of server storage and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will offer the resources your website actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Freelance Web Hosting, offer a large assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-end account and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced plan takes only a click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain websites, above all online shops, demand software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software that does not request root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that need complete root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it operates in an exactly identical way.
Both platforms commonly include full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts come with diverse specs based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting plan includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spans of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
