Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Hosting - Advantages

The most adequate option for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per user critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will offer the specifications your web page in fact needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at SupernovaHost, offer an extensive collection of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a cheaper account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given sites, chiefly web stores, need software applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in precisely the same way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions generally give full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts have different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief spans of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to run as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
