There are different types of hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

The most appropriate option for small scale web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per individual critically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a plan that will have the features your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at VaporRave.com, offer an enormous choice of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a basic account and you require more features, upgrading to a high-end package demands just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Some sites, above all online shops, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it performs in strictly the same way.
Both platforms commonly provide root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts contain different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual hosting server package offers guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief periods of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain web hosting firms offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they implement dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
