Virtual web hosting is the same as shared hosting. It basically refers to the fact that you have your web site hosted on a server and the server provides hosting for multiple sites. Your site will not be the only one using the resources on the server. Virtual web hosting is available on both Unix and Windows based servers. It is the most common type of hosting available and most companies will find shared hosting to fit their web hosting needs. However, if you have a large website which has high traffic you may consider having a dedicated server so you can take advantage of all of the server resources including storage space, security, software and speed.
