There are different varieties of hosting accounts appropriate for different sites with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the best hosting service for your online portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

The most adequate option for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a package that will include the specs your website indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at The Georgia Web Warrior Hosting, offer an enormous assortment of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low priced account and you require more resources, moving to a more feature-rich package involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A disadvantage of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific web pages, mainly web storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not need complete server root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both services typically provide full server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans involve diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual server hosting account includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief intervals of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by skilled users.
Yet, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement web server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
Prior To Electing...
Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable operation of a web page. Before picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, investigate carefully all the requirements for the website to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
