There are various types of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To choose the most relevant hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most proper alternative for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user critically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a plan that will have the resources your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the website. We, at EZ IT Solutions, offer a big selection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low grade plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced package involves just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific sites, particularly web shops, need applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software platforms that do not need server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that need complete root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both platforms normally come with root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages involve different characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server plan includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short stretches of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS is easier to run as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
Before You Choose...
Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web portal.
