There are various kinds of hosting plans suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web page, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

The most appropriate choice for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per client substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will have the specs your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Pc Corzo Solutions Hosting, offer a vast choice of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low priced plan and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful package demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Negative Sides
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given sites, especially web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software that does not need full root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that require complete server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in an absolutely identical manner.
Both services generally include full root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server packages involve different specs depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual hosting server package includes guaranteed server space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
