There are various sorts of hosting plans suitable for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software programs it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most appropriate alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will have the specifications your website indeed demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at AX Cloud, offer a vast variety of hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-price package and you require more system resources, moving to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Specific web pages, above all online stores, demand software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not request complete server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web sites that request complete root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it operates in a precisely identical manner.
Both solutions normally provide server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans comprise diverse features depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to run as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Yet, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
