There are different types of hosting services suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.

The most optimal option for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per customer considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage and bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will include the features your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Hepsia.Co, offer a huge selection of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a basic package and you require more features, moving to a more feature-rich account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Certain sites, above all web shops, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software programs that do not request full root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that require complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms typically provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts come with diverse functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private hosting server account contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short spells of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manipulate as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained users.
Still, given web hosts provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can affect the proper functioning of a web page.
