There are different types of hosting services suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

The most adequate option for small websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per person significantly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, supplying different quotas of server storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will include the resources your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at TronINDEX, offer a vast choice of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a cheaper plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weaknesses
A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Certain web sites, above all web stores, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not need full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers
For online portals that demand full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in exactly the same manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both platforms normally come with full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting accounts come with diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account includes guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for short stretches of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manage as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
