Quality Web Hosting
There are different varieties of web hosting packages suitable for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To pick the most appropriate web hosting service for your web page, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The most suitable alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of web space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will have the specs your online portal really requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at TopDog Hosting, offer a huge array of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a basic package and you require more system resources, moving to a more advanced package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A negative side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Specific web pages, chiefly online stores, require applications to be installed on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not require full root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that require complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions traditionally provide full root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages comprise diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual hosting server plan offers guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to manage as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
