The advantage is that you can buy a plan that will include the specifications your web page really requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web portal.

If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a high-end package takes just a click.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Some web sites, particularly online shops, need applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not need root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that request complete root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both services commonly provide server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans sport different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual server web hosting package has guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by experienced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
