Quality Shared Web Hosting
There are different varieties of shared web hosting solutions suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared web hosting service for your online portal, you need to judge what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The most proper option for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will offer the specs your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Website Handyman, offer a wide choice of shared web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-cost package and you demand more features, moving to a more powerful plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given sites, particularly web shops, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not need full root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that require full server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both environments commonly include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server plans have different features depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account includes guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
