Quality Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting plans appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the most proper web hosting service for your site, you need to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Upsides

The most relevant choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per customer markedly. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one provider to another, providing different quotas of disk space and traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot host the web site. We, at Ignite Hosting, offer a wide choice of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low grade plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a high-end package takes just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Given web pages, particularly online shops, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not demand full root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that request complete root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a strictly identical manner.
Both environments generally offer full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages involve different specifications depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting account contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to tackle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
