There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.
Shared Hosting - Upsides

The most suitable choice for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per individual critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one company to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will have the specifications your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at SYSOX Web Services, offer a large choice of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package requires only a click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Specific sites, above all online shops, require applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software applications that do not require root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that demand full server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both services typically include full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts involve diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web server hosting package has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short intervals of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
Prior To Choosing...
