There are various sorts of hosting services appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your website, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.

The most appropriate alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per individual considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, offering different amounts of storage space and web traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will provide the features your web site in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at NTyT CLOUND, offer a vast array of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Some web portals, especially web storefronts, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request complete root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in an exactly identical way.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally come with root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server account includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to handle as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by experienced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
