There are various kinds of hosting packages suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Sides

The most optimal option for small sized online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per client seriously. There are different web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, furnishing different amounts of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the features your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Sulana Hosting, offer an extensive collection of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low grade account and you demand more features, moving to a better plan demands only a click.
Shared Hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain web pages, chiefly online stores, need applications to be available on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not request complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that request complete root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it runs in a strictly identical manner.
Both platforms generally provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans come with different features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to run as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete dedicated server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
Before You Opt...
Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper functioning of a online portal. Prior to choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, study carefully all the preconditions for the web page to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
