There are different sorts of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

The most relevant choice for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per individual significantly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of disk space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the resources your web site really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the site. We, at ICT Gurus EA Best Hosting, offer an enormous choice of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a cheaper account and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced account involves just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given sites, above all web stores, request applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not demand full server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that demand full server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in a precisely identical way.
VPS Web Servers
Both services usually include root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages comprise different characteristics based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server package includes guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by competent users.
Still, certain web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
