Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant web hosting service for your web site, you must judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The most suitable alternative for small size sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per customer noticeably. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for an account that will offer the features your online portal actually demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at Dutchsale.com, offer an extensive array of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a cheaper account and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given web portals, mainly online storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not need full root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that need server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in a precisely identical manner.
Both environments generally include full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server plans have different functionalities based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual server plan includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief intervals of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified users.
Nonetheless, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
