There are different varieties of hosting accounts suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The most optimal option for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per client radically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specifications your online portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web page. We, at JBC Group, offer a wide assortment of hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-end plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a better account requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Specific web sites, mainly online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not request server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that request complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Private Servers
Both platforms generally offer root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to run as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by experienced customers.
Nonetheless, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
