Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the web hosting environment they need. To select the most suitable web hosting service for your web page, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

The most appropriate option for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per individual radically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one company to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Catholic Web Hosting Services, offer a large choice of web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low grade account and you require more resources, moving to a better account takes only a click.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Some web sites, particularly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not need full root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in exactly the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually include root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts comprise diverse features based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual web server package includes guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief periods of time provided that there are free 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 revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to manage as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement dedicated server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
