There are various kinds of hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the best hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most proper alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer markedly. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will have the resources your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Cloud4kiwi.co.nz, offer an extensive selection of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain online portals, chiefly web storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand complete server root access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request complete server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in a strictly identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both services usually include complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans involve diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual server plan includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short intervals of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual server is easier to cope with as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced users.
Yet, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
