Quality Website Hosting
There are different types of website hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the website hosting platform they require. To choose the most relevant website hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Pluses

The best option for small sized web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per client radically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one host to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will include the specs your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the site. We, at DeluxeHost.net, offer an extensive collection of website hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you require more resources, moving to a more feature-rich package demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some sites, especially web shops, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not request full server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services traditionally offer complete root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting plans come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spells of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
