There are various types of hosting plans appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Strong Sides
The most optimal choice for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one host to another, supplying different quotas of web storage and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will include the specifications your web page indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Malta Hosting, offer a big selection of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced package requires just a click.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Given web pages, especially online shops, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not demand complete root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that request complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in exactly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both environments traditionally include complete server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages involve different functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting package has guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient users.
Yet, given web hosts offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Selecting the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable functioning of a website. Before selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, study completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
