There are various types of hosting plans appropriate for different sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the best hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

The most suitable option for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user significantly. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, providing different amounts of server storage space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will provide the features your web site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at 1onlinehost, offer a wide array of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a basic account and you require more functionalities, moving to a high-end package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific websites, especially web stores, require applications to be available on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that request complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in exactly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both environments usually include full root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts have diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting plan contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short intervals of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to handle as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement dedicated web server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
