There are various types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most adequate choice for small scale web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will offer the specs your web page indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at AppDome Services, offer an immense variety of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan takes only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Drawbacks
A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Some web sites, chiefly web stores, demand applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not demand full server root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand full root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services traditionally offer full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans contain diverse specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server plan contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled clients.
Yet, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
Prior To Deciding...
Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a web site. Before selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, appraise carefully all the prerequisites for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
