Quality Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.

The most proper choice for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per client noticeably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of server space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a package that will include the specs your website actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at kAsTech Hosting, offer a great variety of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-end account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful plan demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given web portals, above all web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not request root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that require complete root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both services traditionally provide full server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages have different specs based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to cope with as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
