There are various types of hosting plans appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most optimal choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per individual substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will provide the resources your web portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at CTRsite, offer a great variety of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced account demands only a click.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A weakness of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given websites, chiefly web shops, need applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software that does not require server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that request complete server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both services usually come with root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans include different functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS server web hosting package contains guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief periods of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
Prior To Deciding...
Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can affect the proper work of a website. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the web portal to work properly, especially if it is script-powered.
