Quality Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web page, you must calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.

The most proper alternative for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per user markedly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will have the features your website really needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Digital Steer Web Services, offer a vast choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific web sites, mainly web shops, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not require full root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that demand full server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in an exactly identical way.
Both services generally offer full root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages sport different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual web hosting server package has guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by experienced users.
Still, certain providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
