There are different types of web hosting services appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need.

The most proper alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per user substantially. There are various web hosting plans differing from one host to another, offering different amounts of server space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get an account that will offer the specs your web portal really needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at ZrainMedia Hosting, offer an immense assortment of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you need more resources, upgrading to a better plan requires just a click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Points

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Certain sites, especially online shops, demand applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not demand full root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that need full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in precisely the same way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions commonly offer full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans contain different specifications based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief intervals of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting services where they run web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
