Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate web hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most proper choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer markedly. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of server space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will offer the specs your online portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at Valicom Net Ltd, offer a wide collection of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-cost plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced package demands only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given sites, particularly online shops, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not require server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that need root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in a precisely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally offer full root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans contain different specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it offers virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Yet, some web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
