Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate web hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

The best option for small size websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per user considerably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will include the specs your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at instalhost, offer a vast choice of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you need more resources, moving to a more advanced plan involves only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain websites, above all online storefronts, require software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full server root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand full root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it acts in an exactly identical manner.
Both platforms normally come with server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans come with different characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief stretches of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to run as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
