The most optimal choice for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per client critically.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific online portals, especially online shops, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software programs that do not require full server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that request complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally include server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server plans include diverse specs depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual web server hosting account offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spans of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
