Quality Web Hosting
There are different sorts of web hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your website, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most adequate choice for small size web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per client considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the features your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at BitLife Host, offer a great assortment of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a less powerful account and you demand more features, upgrading to a better package takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Specific sites, mainly online stores, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that need root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Web Servers
Both solutions usually give complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts involve diverse features based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private web hosting server account offers guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spans of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is simpler to handle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
