Quality Shared Hosting
There are various varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you must estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, supplying different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the features your web site actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the website. We, at PinPoint Marketing Hosting Services, offer a huge selection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you demand more system resources, moving to a better account involves only a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Shortcomings
A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Specific web portals, particularly web shops, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software applications that do not demand root access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments usually come with complete root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server hosting account offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short stretches of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
