There are different kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most adequate option for small sized sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per client radically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, offering different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will include the resources your web portal really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the site. We, at World Reseller Hosting, offer a great variety of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Certain websites, particularly web stores, demand applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that require full root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in a strictly identical manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both services typically offer full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve different features depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual hosting server plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by competent users.
Nonetheless, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
