Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting services suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate web hosting service for your website, you must judge what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The best choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per client markedly. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of web space and monthly traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will include the resources your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at HostCheetah.net, offer an extensive variety of web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you demand more features, moving to a better account requires just a click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Certain websites, particularly web stores, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need full server root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that request complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it operates in precisely the same manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both environments commonly come with complete root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts contain different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting server plan has guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
