There are various varieties of hosting plans suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the best hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

The best alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will have the specifications your online portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Best PC Haven, offer a large assortment of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-cost plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points
A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific websites, chiefly web shops, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting package, you can install only software programs that do not demand complete server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that request complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it works in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms traditionally offer server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans have different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web server package includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short intervals of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to tackle as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Opting...
Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper performance of a site. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
