There are various varieties of hosting packages suitable for different web pages with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your web site, you have to judge what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most appropriate option for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a package that will offer the specs your web page really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Hosting Plus de Proyco Corporacion, offer an immense selection of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software. Given web sites, mainly online stores, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not require root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For online portals that need root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments usually include complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages include different characteristics based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server account contains guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to tackle as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
