Quality Website Hosting
There are various types of website hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the website hosting environment they require. To pick the most optimal website hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.
Shared website hosting - Positive Sides

Unlimited websites hosted
The most adequate option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per customer noticeably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, offering different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a package that will offer the specs your website really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at DomainPiggy, offer an immense collection of website hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end package requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific web pages, above all online shops, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software applications that do not demand full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that need full root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in exactly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both solutions commonly offer complete server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages include diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting plan includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by proficient users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
