There are different types of hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the best hosting service for your web site, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

The most suitable alternative for small sized web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per client considerably. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will have the specs your site really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Hosting Pine, offer an extensive array of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low priced account and you need more features, moving to a more advanced plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Downsides
A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given web pages, particularly online shops, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software that does not demand full root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that request full server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it operates in absolutely the same way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services traditionally offer complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise diverse features based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting plan has guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Yet, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
