There are various kinds of hosting services appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web site, you must calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

The most optimal choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web host to another, offering different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your web page indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at C Hosting, offer a wide assortment of hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low priced package and you need more features, moving to a better account requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Given websites, chiefly web stores, require applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software applications that do not request complete root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in precisely the same way.
Both environments generally provide root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts sport diverse specifications depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private hosting server package offers guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief stretches of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to cope with as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Still, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they run web hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Deciding...
Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable functioning of a web site. Before opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
