Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The most appropriate option for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per individual seriously. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of data space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a plan that will include the specifications your website really requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Web iCloud Hosting, offer an immense choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low grade account and you require more resources, moving to a high-end account requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Specific web portals, above all online storefronts, require applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software programs that do not request full root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that need full server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it operates in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both environments typically provide root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages sport diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable work of a web portal.
