Quality Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting packages suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your online portal, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.

The most optimal option for small scale sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per customer radically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will include the specs your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at Sunset Host, offer a large selection of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-end account and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful account requires only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific web portals, chiefly online storefronts, request software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software platforms that do not need complete server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web sites that demand complete root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it acts in an absolutely identical manner.
Both solutions normally include server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include diverse features based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting package offers guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
