Quality Shared Hosting
There are various varieties of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per customer seriously. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of data space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will offer the specs your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the online portal. We, at AllMyHosting, offer a great choice of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Specific online portals, above all online shops, request applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not request full server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that demand full server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.
Both platforms generally provide root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts involve diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan contains guaranteed data storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spans of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain hosts provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
