Shared web hosting:
Shared web hosting is now popular and is used by a number of people. In this service you can get place for hosting your website along with the other websites. But the clients get separate control panel and some features though they are not similar to the services of dedicated hosting services. Shared web hosting is cost effective and a single administrator can control and observe the services. Here is the main issue for getting the advantage from the shared web hosting. This service is one of the most used services in this period. Most of the people get this service because they have no capability to manage the dedicated hosting.
The bandwidth in shared web hosting is distributed among all the hosted websites and that is the demerits of shared web hosting. For the hosting service provider, the maintenance is difficult for shared web hosting because the administrator has to look over all the websites at a time. The algorithm is complex to distribute the services of the server and they are mainly equally distributed. Some techniques may be applied to distribute the bandwidth manually.
The security of shared web hosting is not so strong like the dedicated server because a number of websites are hosted in a single server. Some logics and techniques are applied to improve the shared hosting services because they are used everywhere. For that reason, shared service is also developing day by day. All the servers are strong enough to serve the purposes of websites and some technical algorithms and mechanisms are applied to give the maximum services among the hosted websites. The browser of the website gets lowed bandwidth but the owner of the site can give the services with lower cost.
Virtual private server is designed to ensure better resource usability for the clients. Fixed resources are allocated for a specific client and the client has to pay fixed amount in a predefined time interval.
Dedicated web hosting
Dedicated web hosting ensures to provide resources on demand basis. Shared web hosting is fully different from the dedicated hosting services. Large companies and industries mainly use this type of services. In dedicated hosting, one administrator is required for maintaining the server and a single machine is used for hosting one website. It is very expensive and is not applicable for all kinds of clients.
