Shared website hosting - Shortcomings
A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Certain sites, particularly online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand complete root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that need server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally provide full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server accounts come with diverse characteristics based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain web hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they complete web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
