Quality Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the best shared hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

The best alternative for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per client critically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your web site indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Hamilton Hosting, offer an extensive array of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-price account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Certain web pages, particularly web storefronts, require applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that demand full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both platforms usually give root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans include different specs based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
