There are various varieties of hosting services appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your web page, you must calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

The most relevant alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per client seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of web storage space and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will include the specifications your site actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Wight Hosting, offer a big assortment of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced account demands just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific sites, chiefly web stores, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For portals that require complete root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in exactly the same manner.
Both services commonly come with full root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server hosting packages sport different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan contains guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spells of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
