There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the best hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.

The most relevant alternative for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of web space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will have the resources your web page indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot host the web site. We, at Suazo Hosting, offer a wide selection of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful package and you need more resources, moving to a better account takes only a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Signs
A shortcoming of the shared hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some web portals, particularly web storefronts, require software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software that does not need complete server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require full server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in an absolutely identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both services commonly provide root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts include different functionalities based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account offers guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they carry out dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Electing...
Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper operation of a web portal. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
