Quality Web Hosting
There are different sorts of web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate web hosting service for your site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The most adequate alternative for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will provide the features your website really requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at IDEA MD Hosting, offer a big assortment of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low grade plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Specific web sites, above all web stores, request applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not request root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that demand root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both environments commonly come with full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans have diverse specifications based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server account contains guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
