Quality Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

The best choice for small web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per user radically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, delivering different quotas of data space and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the specs your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Christian Web Hosting, offer a big collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Some sites, above all online stores, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not request root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that demand root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both services generally include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web server account has guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief stretches of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
