Quality Web Hosting
There are various kinds of web hosting services appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To pick the best web hosting service for your web page, you need to calculate 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 satisfied.

The most relevant choice for small web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per client radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will offer the specifications your site actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Social Stream ME, offer a great collection of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a less powerful package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account demands just a click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Specific web pages, above all web shops, request software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not need server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both services typically offer root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts come with different functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web server account offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
