There are various kinds of hosting services appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web site, you must calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.

The most appropriate alternative for small size sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per user substantially. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, delivering different quotas of data space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will provide the resources your site in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the website. We, at Garden State Business Center, offer a great variety of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a basic package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end package requires just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A negative side of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given web pages, particularly online shops, require software applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not request root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web pages that require complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical manner.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms traditionally give full server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages involve diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spells of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to handle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
