There are different varieties of hosting services suitable for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your site, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, 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 satisfied.

The most adequate alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per person noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will have the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the web page. We, at JSoto Hosting, offer an enormous choice of hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end account involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Given web pages, mainly web shops, demand applications to be installed on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software that does not require server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that require full root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in a strictly identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services commonly give full root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans come with different features based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS web server package has guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web page.
