There are different kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant choice for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per person critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of web space and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will include the specifications your online portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot host the online portal. We, at Mujica Hosting, offer a great assortment of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low priced package and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared Website Hosting - Drawbacks
A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific online portals, particularly online shops, require software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in a strictly identical way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally offer full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans comprise different features based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual server hosting plan contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS is simpler to tackle as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified users.
Still, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Picking the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web page.
