Quality Web Hosting
There are different varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your web site, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.

The best option for small scale online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per individual noticeably. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one web host to another, providing different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will offer the resources your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Host 23, offer a vast selection of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Given web sites, mainly web stores, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it works in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both environments usually include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans have diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short stretches of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
