Quality Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting accounts suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

The best option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase an account that will offer the features your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at WebMediaHosting, offer a wide choice of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-price plan and you require more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some web portals, mainly online storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that request complete root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Both solutions usually give full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain different specs depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web hosting server package contains guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for brief intervals of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.
However, certain companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run dedicated server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
