The most suitable option for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per person noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one host to another, offering different quotas of disk storage and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web portal.

If you commence with a basic plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web sites, mainly web stores, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not request root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that need full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in absolutely the same way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both solutions typically offer server root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans comprise different characteristics depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server account has guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spells of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, certain providers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
