There are different sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most optimal hosting service for your website, you must estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The most relevant alternative for small sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per customer seriously. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the features your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Web Hosting and Servers, offer a great array of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a basic account and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich package takes just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web portals, mainly online stores, demand applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not request root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that request root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both platforms traditionally offer full root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting packages include different functionalities based on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server hosting account has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to handle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced clients.
Nonetheless, certain hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
