Quality Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

The most optimal choice for small size web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per person markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of server storage and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase an account that will have the features your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the website. We, at Economic Hosting, offer a great choice of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a cheaper package and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced package demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Some online portals, above all online shops, require applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software that does not need complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that require complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments generally include root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages sport different specifications based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting package offers guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web site. Before opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
