Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Certain web portals, mainly web stores, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software that does not request complete server root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that request full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services usually come with full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages comprise different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web server hosting plan includes guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short spans of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to cope with as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
