There are different kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most relevant hosting service for your web page, you must evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

The most appropriate choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the specifications your online portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the website. We, at EUROLATINAMERICAhost, offer a wide variety of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low priced plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes only a click.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Specific online portals, particularly web storefronts, demand software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software applications that do not demand full server root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that request full server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.
Both solutions traditionally offer server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts involve different features based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS account contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spells of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS is easier to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, some hosting companies provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
Prior To Electing...
Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable operation of a web site. Before choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web portal to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
