There are different types of hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most optimal hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most relevant alternative for small online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user substantially. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will have the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Bisdak World Online Web Hosting, offer a great assortment of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a basic plan and you demand more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Some web sites, above all web shops, need software applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in strictly the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally give complete server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual server account includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short periods of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to run as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
