There are different types of hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate hosting service for your online portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared Website Hosting - Dividends
The most proper option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per user critically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for a package that will have the features your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at NinjiHost, offer a vast choice of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a cheaper account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Minuses
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given online portals, particularly online shops, demand software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not require complete server root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web pages that require full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Servers
Both services traditionally give complete root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts include diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server account has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a web portal.
