There are different kinds of hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you must estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be satisfied.

The most relevant option for small web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per user considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specifications your web portal actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at LuisArts Network, offer a huge choice of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes only a mouse click.
Shared Hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Certain web portals, particularly online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software that does not request complete server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For online portals that demand server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it runs in a precisely identical way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both environments typically come with full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans come with different features based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A Virtual Private Server plan offers guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short spans of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is easier to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Nonetheless, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
