There are various sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web site, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared website hosting - Perks
The most appropriate alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per user substantially. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of data storage and traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will include the specs your site actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at 1onlinehost, offer an enormous assortment of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low priced account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a better account involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given online portals, chiefly online shops, need applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software programs that do not need root-level access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that request complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in strictly the same manner.
Both environments normally provide full root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages comprise diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spells of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to manage as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable work of a online portal.
