There are various varieties of hosting solutions suitable for different websites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the best hosting service for your website, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of web storage and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will have the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Web Host EZ, offer a great variety of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Downsides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some sites, especially online storefronts, require applications to be present on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not require root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that need complete root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms typically give root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts include different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private hosting server account offers guaranteed server storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to run as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
