Quality Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most relevant alternative for small websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per client drastically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of disk storage and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will provide the resources your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the website. We, at TM Web Hosting, offer a huge variety of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you require more features, moving to a more powerful plan demands just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Sides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain online portals, chiefly web shops, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that require root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both environments generally provide full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages include different features depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server hosting package contains guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Nonetheless, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
