Quality Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The best choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per customer noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will offer the features your web page actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Mintah Hosting Services, offer a big array of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more resources, moving to a better account demands only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web portals, mainly online storefronts, request software applications to be available on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not request full root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that request full root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it runs in a precisely identical manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally provide full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual server is easier to administer as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.
However, given hosting companies provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
