There are different varieties of hosting services appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web page, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

The most adequate choice for small sized web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per person significantly. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will include the specs your website in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at MilkyWayHosting.Com, offer a large selection of hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low priced account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan demands only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given web sites, mainly online storefronts, require applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that demand complete server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in a precisely identical manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both solutions commonly include complete root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans involve different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed data storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it involves virtualization software, 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 resorted to by practiced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they complete hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
