There are various kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your web site, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most adequate option for small size online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per individual considerably. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of web space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a package that will have the features your web site in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Blue Grape Hosting, offer an immense array of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich package requires just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A weak side of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given sites, chiefly web shops, request applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not request full root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that demand full root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it runs in strictly the same way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms traditionally come with complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages involve diverse features depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server web hosting package includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS is simpler to run as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out web hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
