Quality Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting packages suitable for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be answered.

The most proper choice for small scale web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per client significantly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of web space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get an account that will include the specifications your online portal actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the site.

If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful account requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Certain web portals, above all online shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services typically provide full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages have different specs depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server hosting account contains guaranteed web storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to run as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by skilled customers.
Nonetheless, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
