Quality Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Web Hosting - Benefits

The best alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per customer radically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a package that will include the specifications your website really requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the site. We, at ByoHosting, offer a huge choice of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you demand more system resources, moving to a better account demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web pages, particularly web storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software programs that do not require complete root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it runs in exactly the same way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both environments usually include server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans have different characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual hosting server package contains guaranteed disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Nevertheless, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
