There are various types of hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

The most appropriate option for small scale websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per client seriously. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specifications your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Pro System Web Hosting, offer a large array of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low-end plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan involves only a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Given web pages, especially online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it operates in an exactly identical way.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments commonly give full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting accounts involve diverse specifications based on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual web server hosting plan offers guaranteed web storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short intervals of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
