There are different kinds of hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most proper hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most optimal alternative for small websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per customer substantially. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will have the features your web site really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Terabit, offer a vast assortment of hosting plans suitable for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low-end package and you require more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared Web Hosting - Weak Sides
A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Certain online portals, mainly online storefronts, demand software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software that does not request root-level access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that need root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in a precisely identical way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both platforms commonly offer full root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting account contains guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spans of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced users.
Nonetheless, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
