There are various varieties of hosting packages suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate hosting service for your web page, you need to access what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The most optimal choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per customer seriously. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a package that will provide the specs your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Sreda Top, offer an extensive variety of hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced package requires only a click.
Shared Hosting - Shortcomings
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain websites, especially web shops, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For sites that require full server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in exactly the same way.
Private Virtual Servers
Both solutions generally include complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans come with different characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS server web hosting plan offers guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spans of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to cope with as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by skilled customers.
Still, some web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they carry out dedicated server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
