Quality Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

The most proper alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will include the specifications your website in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at SSD Host ECWebDesigns, offer a large array of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced account requires only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly online stores, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not require full server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that require root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in absolutely the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments typically give complete root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages sport diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short stretches of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS server is easier to administer as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
