There are various kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most optimal alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will have the features your web page really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Space Hostia, offer a huge choice of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low grade plan and you require more features, upgrading to a high-end plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific online portals, chiefly web shops, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that request full server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services traditionally offer complete root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans involve diverse features depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting package has guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short intervals of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
