Quality Website Hosting
There are different kinds of website hosting solutions suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the website hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate website hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Advantages

Unlimited websites hosted
The most adequate alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per individual substantially. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will provide the resources your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at 7 Sea Host, offer a great array of website hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you need more system resources, moving to a better plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific sites, mainly online stores, need applications to be present on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not demand complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that need full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services normally include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts sport different functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS server hosting plan includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spans of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
