There are various varieties of hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.

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 space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client noticeably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order an account that will have the features your web page actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the site. We, at FiduHosting, offer a big choice of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a low-price plan and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced package involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Downsides
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Certain websites, particularly web storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not need complete root access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that demand complete root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments typically include root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server packages sport diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
