The best choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per client critically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will provide the features your site in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web site. We, at GTO Hosting, offer an enormous variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a basic plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific websites, mainly web stores, need software applications to be present on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally provide full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans have diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A virtual private web server hosting plan contains guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short stretches of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
