Quality Shared Hosting
There are various varieties of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.
Shared web hosting - Good Points

The most proper choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per client significantly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a package that will provide the specs your web page really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Tahoe Web Service, offer an extensive collection of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a better account demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly online shops, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not demand complete root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that request complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments normally give complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages involve diverse specs depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS hosting server plan offers guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief intervals of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to administer as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by experienced users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete web server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
