Quality Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Benefits

The most appropriate option for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per client significantly. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will include the specifications your web page in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Asia Pacific Hosting, offer a big choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a cheaper package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Some web portals, especially online stores, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not need full root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that need complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it functions in precisely the same manner.
Both environments typically include root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans involve different specs depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web hosting account has guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short periods of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
