Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A downside of the shared hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given online portals, particularly web storefronts, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not demand complete root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that require full server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it works in precisely the same manner.
Both solutions normally provide root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages contain diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual private web hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief stretches of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manage as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled users.
However, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
