There are different varieties of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.

The most optimal choice for small websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per person radically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a package that will offer the features your website indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web site. We, at Evostrix Hosting, offer an immense variety of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low priced plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan takes just a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Given web pages, particularly online shops, request applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that demand root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services usually give complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server plans comprise diverse functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A Virtual Private Server package includes guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief stretches of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
