Quality Shared Web Hosting
There are various types of shared web hosting services suitable for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate shared web hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.

The most adequate option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per customer radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will have the specs your website in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at I'mHosting, offer an enormous selection of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-end account and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Negative Sides
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific sites, above all web stores, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not need full server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that need server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions commonly offer server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server packages contain diverse specifications based on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual private web server account has guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spans of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manipulate as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, given hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
