There are various kinds of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

The most optimal option for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client noticeably. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of disk space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a package that will include the features your website really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at NinjiHost, offer a great array of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-end account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Some sites, above all online storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not need server root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that request root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in an exactly identical manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both services usually include root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server accounts have diverse specs depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web server hosting account contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short stretches of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
