There are different sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the best hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most relevant option for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per person noticeably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will include the features your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Website Pro Host, offer a great assortment of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low priced package and you require more functionalities, moving to a better package involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Given online portals, chiefly online shops, request applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software applications that do not require complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that require server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally include root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans include diverse specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
