There are various varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.
Shared Hosting - Strong Points
The most proper option for small size web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall cost per individual noticeably. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for an account that will provide the specifications your site actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Blue Domain Hosting, offer a huge variety of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low-end package and you require more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Some web sites, mainly online stores, need applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need full root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web pages that require root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in a strictly identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally include complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting packages involve diverse specs depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to administer as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a website.
