Quality Web Hosting
There are different kinds of web hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user noticeably. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy an account that will offer the specs your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Lime Server, offer a vast selection of web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress – to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you need more features, moving to a more powerful plan involves just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting – Negative Aspects
A downside of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Some web portals, mainly online shops, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it performs in an exactly identical way.
Both services commonly provide complete root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans sport different specs based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting server plan has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short intervals of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
However, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
