There are various sorts of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you must access what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The most proper alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per client significantly. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will provide the features your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the website. We, at HostSik, offer a great variety of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some web sites, particularly online stores, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software programs that do not demand full root-level access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that request complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services usually include complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting plans have different specs depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web server hosting package has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by qualified users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
