Quality Web Hosting
There are various types of web hosting services suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per client noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a plan that will include the resources your site really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Genius Monster Network, offer an enormous choice of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Some web portals, above all web stores, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software programs that do not need complete root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that request full root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in a precisely identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services normally provide complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans come with different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting account contains guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to administer as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
