There are different sorts of hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The most appropriate alternative for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per client radically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy a package that will include the features your web page in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Bogart Media, offer a vast array of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a cheaper account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich package takes just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Downsides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Certain online portals, particularly online storefronts, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not require full root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For online portals that need root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both services normally give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages have different specifications depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual hosting server package has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes 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 limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to administer as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.
Nonetheless, certain hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
