The most appropriate alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific sites, chiefly online storefronts, require applications to be installed on the server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that require complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it operates in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both environments normally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans come with different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for brief intervals of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
