Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the best web hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.

The best option for small size web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of disk space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a plan that will offer the features your online portal really requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Nova Webhosting, offer a great variety of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a basic package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end account involves just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given online portals, particularly web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not request complete server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that demand server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally come with complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server accounts contain different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS hosting package offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spells of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
