Quality Web Hosting
There are different varieties of web hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in regard to the system resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared Website Hosting - Positive Sides

Unlimited websites hosted
The best option for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per customer radically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for an account that will offer the specs your web page in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Nex2Host, offer a big array of web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a cheaper package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly web stores, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate solely software that does not request full root-level access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically give complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts sport different features based on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual server web hosting account includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy customers.
Yet, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
