There are various types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most suitable hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.

The most adequate alternative for small sized websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, delivering different quotas of data storage and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the resources your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the online portal. We, at Jambori Hosting, offer an extensive variety of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a less powerful package and you demand more system resources, moving to a better account involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some web sites, especially online stores, require software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not require complete server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in a strictly identical way.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both environments usually provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages sport different specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS web server hosting package contains guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short periods of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to run as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
