Quality Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web page, you must estimate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most relevant choice for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per individual substantially. There are different web hosting plans varying from one provider to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain an account that will have the specifications your website actually requires. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Acken Host, offer an extensive selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a cheaper plan and you require more features, moving to a more advanced plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Some sites, above all web stores, demand software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that require full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions generally offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting accounts have diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to tackle as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
