Quality Website Hosting
There are different types of website hosting packages suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the website hosting environment they need. To select the most relevant website hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

The most suitable choice for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per person noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, delivering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the site. We, at OnionHost, offer an immense array of website hosting packages suitable for private or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-end account and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Some websites, chiefly web shops, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not require full root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that require root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in strictly the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both services commonly include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts comprise different features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual server package includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Yet, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
Prior To Deciding...
Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the proper operation of a website. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the preconditions for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
