There are various kinds of hosting services suitable for different websites in regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To choose the most suitable hosting service for your web portal, you need to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The most relevant choice for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of server space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a plan that will have the resources your web site in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Beyond Real Hosting, offer a wide choice of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a basic plan and you need more resources, moving to a more advanced plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Given web sites, particularly web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not require root-level access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that request full server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms normally provide full root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages come with different specs based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS web hosting plan offers guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spells of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to administer as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.
Still, certain hosts offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
Before You Elect...
Choosing the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a website.
