There are various kinds of hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.

The most proper option for small size web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per person noticeably. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will include the resources your web portal really demands. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Hosting Webs UK, offer a big assortment of hosting plans suitable for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a basic plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Some websites, mainly online shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand full root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that request complete server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in precisely the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms traditionally offer full root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting server package has guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spells of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to manipulate as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by skilled customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
