There are various varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the best hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be answered.

The most proper alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per customer substantially. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting vendor to another, providing different amounts of web space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will include the specifications your site actually requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Cloud Host Shop, offer an extensive choice of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package involves only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific web pages, especially online shops, need applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not need root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in strictly the same way.
Both platforms traditionally give full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spans of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by proficient clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Before You Decide...
Choosing the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a online portal.
