Quality Web Hosting
There are different varieties of web hosting accounts suitable for different websites with regard to the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate web hosting service for your web page, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

The most optimal alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per user noticeably. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will include the resources your site really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Billixx IT Consulting, offer a vast collection of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you demand more features, moving to a high-end package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Specific online portals, above all web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not require root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that demand root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it runs in an exactly identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages involve diverse specs depending on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief periods of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
