There are different types of hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.
Shared Hosting - Benefits
The most appropriate choice for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per user noticeably. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of data space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will offer the specs your web page indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Web iCloud Hosting, offer an immense variety of hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A downside of the shared hosting platform is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Specific online portals, above all web stores, require software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not need complete root access.
VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For websites that request full root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it operates in precisely the same way.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both platforms commonly include complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting plans come with diverse functionalities based on what the hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to administer as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
