Quality Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most proper choice for small web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per user noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at iRed Hosting, offer a vast assortment of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Shortcomings
A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Certain online portals, above all web stores, demand software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not require root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that need complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in an absolutely identical manner.
Both environments traditionally offer full root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts have different specs based on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spells of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to handle as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
