There are different sorts of hosting packages appropriate for different sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web site, you must judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Signs

The most relevant alternative for small sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will offer the resources your web portal indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Webtania, offer a great variety of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a basic package and you require more system resources, moving to a more advanced account takes only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Negative Sides
A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific sites, chiefly web shops, need applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not require complete server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that request full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in a precisely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms generally give full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans involve diverse specifications based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server plan offers guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief spells of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to manage as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by proficient clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
