There are different kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software 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 need to be met.

The most adequate alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total price per user seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of web storage space and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will have the specs your website really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the site. We, at CONSULTINGFORGE SL, offer a huge selection of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click.
Shared Hosting - Drawbacks
A shortcoming of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Given websites, chiefly online storefronts, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not require root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require full root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically offer full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages come with diverse characteristics based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS package offers guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to manage as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
