Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting packages appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most adequate alternative for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one provider to another, delivering different quotas of server space and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will include the specifications your web portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at CorrectHost, offer a vast array of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced package and you need more resources, moving to a high-end account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Specific web portals, mainly online shops, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that request full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it operates in absolutely the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both solutions generally give root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with diverse functionalities based on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting server plan contains guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.
Nonetheless, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
