There are different kinds of hosting packages suitable for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your site, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The most relevant alternative for small scale websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person significantly. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will provide the specifications your website in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web page. We, at RMvalues, offer a large choice of hosting packages suitable for private or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Disadvantages
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Specific web portals, above all online shops, require applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not request root-level access.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in a strictly identical manner.
Virtual Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally include full root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server plans include different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web hosting server account includes guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spans of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Nonetheless, certain web hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated web server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
