Quality Web Hosting
There are various kinds of web hosting services suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

The most optimal alternative for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per client considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of server storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will have the features your web page actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Ribap Hosting, offer a large choice of web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more advanced package takes just a click.
Shared Hosting - Weak Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific sites, especially web shops, require applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not request server root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it works in an absolutely identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both services normally give full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages include diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting server package has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to handle as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
