With virtual Hosting you can secure server space but you are provided with shared access to the server. Hosting companies provide this service by maintaining a large server and on that large server they maintain a number of virtual web hosts. The machine then responds to the domain name in the given order. Thus, visitors to the site enter through the domain name of the developer and therefore cannot recognize that another company’s server in fact, hosts the site.
Virtual Hosting packages are very attractive and they support both professional and small business applications. Financially, the average virtual hosting account runs between $15 and $30 per month. Ample space and bandwidth for small businesses, multiple email accounts, cgi-bin access, and a T3 connection are common account features. Additional fees are often required for more advanced features including database software or SSL (secure server) functionality.
