There are different varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most adequate hosting service for your website, you have to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per customer noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different amounts of web storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will offer the features your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Malta Hosting, offer a large collection of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, moving to a high-end package demands only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific online portals, especially web stores, need applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software that does not demand complete server root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that need complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both services generally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server accounts contain diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual web server hosting package offers guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to run as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, certain hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web hosting server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
