Quality Shared Web Hosting
There are different types of shared web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To pick the most adequate shared web hosting service for your site, you need to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of data storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will provide the resources your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at LiquidNet, offer an extensive assortment of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Given web pages, particularly web storefronts, request applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software applications that do not require full root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that need root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in strictly the same way.
Both solutions normally include full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans involve different specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting account offers guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spans of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to run as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
