There are different sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the best hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The best alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per client radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of server space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will have the resources your site in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Infosoft Technologies, offer a vast choice of hosting plans suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a basic package and you demand more resources, moving to a high-end account takes just a click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some web sites, particularly online stores, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that need root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in precisely the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services normally come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages involve diverse specs based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent users.
Nonetheless, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
Prior To Selecting...
Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a website. Prior to selecting a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
