There are different sorts of hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the best hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

The most suitable choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per user noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting firm to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will have the resources your web page in fact demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Innovative Hosting Solutions, offer a great array of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you require more features, upgrading to a better account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some web sites, mainly web stores, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require full root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that require root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in a precisely identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services generally give root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting accounts come with diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual server plan includes guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short spells of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
