Quality Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most adequate alternative for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per customer markedly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal actually needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Blinding Edge Hosting, offer a large collection of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you require more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Certain web pages, particularly web stores, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not need server root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in an absolutely identical manner.
Both solutions usually give full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server accounts comprise diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company offers. A VPS account offers guaranteed data storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spells of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by skilled clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
