Quality Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your site, you need to judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most adequate alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a package that will offer the specs your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at East Texas Web Hosting, offer a big selection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Certain online portals, above all web shops, request applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software applications that do not need complete server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that request server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in strictly the same manner.

Both services generally include complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans involve different specifications based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual server hosting plan contains guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
