Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most proper alternative for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per individual significantly. There are different web hosting packages varying from one company to another, providing different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Episcopal Hosting Services, offer a wide variety of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan demands just a click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Points
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Specific web portals, especially online storefronts, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not request root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that demand complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it functions in a strictly identical manner.
Both platforms usually give complete root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts have diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS server package contains guaranteed storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief stretches of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
