Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web pages, chiefly web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate solely software applications that do not require server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that require complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in precisely the same way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services traditionally include root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans come with diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server package contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short intervals of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by practiced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
