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

The most proper alternative for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per client noticeably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, offering different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a plan that will have the specifications your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at Epacket, offer an extensive collection of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account demands just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Specific sites, particularly online shops, need software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that demand root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated package. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it functions in a precisely identical way.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments commonly include root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans come with different specs depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief intervals of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to run as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, certain providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
