There are different varieties of hosting solutions suitable for different websites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your web page, you must 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 special demands that may have to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of server space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will have the specifications your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the web site. We, at Hosting and Design for Us, offer a vast choice of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low-cost package and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful package involves just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given web sites, mainly online storefronts, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software platforms that do not request root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in absolutely the same way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both services generally include full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts sport diverse features based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spans of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to cope with as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete web server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
