There are various kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.

The most relevant option for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per customer drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of web storage space and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will have the specs your website really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web site. We, at YTS Host, offer a huge choice of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a basic plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a better account demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
A negative aspect of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some sites, mainly web storefronts, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full root-level access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that need full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in absolutely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms usually give complete root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans involve diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to run as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Electing...
