Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate web hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.

The most relevant choice for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per user considerably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will have the features your site actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the website. We, at Burningrocks Hosting, offer a huge assortment of web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes only a click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Specific websites, above all web shops, request applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software that does not need full server root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that require server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments commonly include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages include diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan contains guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short intervals of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to manipulate as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
