Quality Web Hosting
There are different sorts of web hosting accounts suitable for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most suitable alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per client radically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a package that will provide the resources your online portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Extra Hoster, offer a large selection of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given online portals, above all web stores, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that request root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally include root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans comprise diverse features depending on what the hosting company offers. A VPS web server hosting package includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spells of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
