Quality Web Hosting
There are various sorts of web hosting services appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most optimal option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per user radically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will offer the specifications your site actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the web site. We, at Molax Hosting, offer a big variety of web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-cost plan and you require more system resources, moving to a better package demands only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A drawback of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Some web pages, above all web shops, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not demand root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in a precisely identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services normally offer root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts contain diverse functionalities based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting server account contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spells of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to administer as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Nonetheless, given providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
