Quality Website Hosting
There are various varieties of website hosting packages appropriate for different sites when it comes to the resources or the website hosting platform they need. To select the best website hosting service for your web site, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The best alternative for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, providing different quotas of web storage space and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will have the features your website in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at AX Cloud, offer a great collection of website hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low priced plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a better account takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Certain web portals, mainly online stores, need applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software applications that do not require complete root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that need complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in precisely the same way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally include full root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts sport different characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS plan contains guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief stretches of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Yet, some hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
