Top Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon 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 special demands that may have to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Pluses
The most suitable alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per user markedly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a package that will include the resources your online portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Mid Georgia Hosting, offer a large collection of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-price package and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given sites, above all web stores, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not request root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that need full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments commonly provide full root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting plans have different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to administer as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Nevertheless, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable work of a website.
