Quality Website Hosting
There are different types of website hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the website hosting platform they require. To pick the most appropriate website hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most relevant alternative for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual substantially. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of server storage and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will provide the specifications your web portal really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Geekforce Hosting, offer a big array of website hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a less powerful account and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich account demands just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given sites, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in precisely the same manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms commonly come with full root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server accounts comprise different features based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual server account has guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief intervals of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to tackle as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Still, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
