There are various varieties of hosting packages suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To select the best hosting service for your site, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects

The best choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per user considerably. There are various web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, providing different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will provide the specifications your web site actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at TGOGM-HOSTING, offer a wide array of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low priced account and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Weaknesses
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Given web pages, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not need root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that require full root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services commonly give full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages come with different features depending on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be expanded for short spans of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is simpler to run as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the proper performance of a online portal. Prior to choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web site to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
