There is no single answer for this question.

However, I can say the answer is a matrix.

Categories are,

User Based (Acceptance testing, Beta Testing , Alpha testing etc)
Method based (Adhoc testing, Integration testing, functional testing etc)
Technique based (BVA,Eq.Partitioning etc.)
Phase based (smoke testing, installation testing, regression testing etc)
