Quality Website Hosting
There are various varieties of website hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the website hosting environment they require. To choose the most proper website hosting service for your web page, you must reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Good Points

Unlimited websites hosted
The best option for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per user considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of server space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will provide the features your website in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at Intrigue Hosting, offer an extensive choice of website hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade package and you require more features, moving to a more powerful plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points
A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Specific web portals, mainly web stores, require applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software platforms that do not request root-level access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that request server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it performs in a precisely identical way.
Both solutions normally come with full root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages sport diverse specs depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS server web hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief intervals of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS is simpler to administer as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
