The most relevant alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per client noticeably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will provide the specifications your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at ARK SERVERS, offer a great choice of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given web sites, especially online shops, demand applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand full root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand complete root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in a strictly identical way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually give server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts come with diverse features depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server account contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief spans of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by competent users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
