Quality Web Hosting
There are different types of web hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most relevant web hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

The most relevant alternative for small size web portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual seriously. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a package that will provide the resources your web portal in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at hostleonard, offer an enormous array of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low priced account and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Points
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Some web sites, especially online storefronts, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete server root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that need complete root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in precisely the same way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms generally come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages comprise diverse features depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server account offers guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spans of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to handle as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
