There are different sorts of hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the best hosting service for your online portal, you must reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most adequate alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per person radically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of disk space and web traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will include the specs your web site in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web site. We, at G Designz, offer an immense selection of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end account demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some web sites, especially online storefronts, need applications to be available on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not require server root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web portals that need full root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in a strictly identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments traditionally give root privileges and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting package offers guaranteed data space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief intervals of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they complete server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
