Shared web hosting - Minuses
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given web portals, especially online stores, require applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions typically offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with different functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS package offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spells of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
