Quality Shared Hosting
There are various varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you have to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

The most adequate choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per person radically. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will have the resources your web site actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at ZeeWebHosting, offer a large choice of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low priced account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better account involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Minuses
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given sites, mainly online storefronts, demand applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software platforms that do not request full root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that request complete server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.
Both platforms traditionally include full server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans contain diverse specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server account offers guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time if there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
