Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting packages suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Points

The most suitable alternative for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per individual significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get a package that will have the specs your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the site. We, at Blue Point Host, offer a large array of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-price plan and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific web portals, particularly online storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not request server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that require full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally come with root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts include different specs depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan includes guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by trained customers.
Nevertheless, certain hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
