Quality Web Hosting
There are various types of web hosting services suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your online portal, you must estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The most suitable alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per client critically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting provider to another, offering different amounts of hard disk space and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will offer the resources your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at CGP Hosting, offer a big choice of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a basic account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some web portals, chiefly online stores, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software that does not need complete root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that request root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in absolutely the same way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both solutions usually provide root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts contain different specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to run as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by competent users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
