If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a better account involves just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Minuses
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Given websites, especially online storefronts, need applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require full server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that need root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services traditionally come with root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages have different specifications based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS plan includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spells of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
