There are different kinds of hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the best hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.

The most relevant option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will include the specifications your website really needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at webserverbee, offer an enormous selection of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a basic package and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects
A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Certain web sites, especially online storefronts, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not demand root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that require full root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services commonly provide complete server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts have different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual web server package includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
