Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting services suitable for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

The most optimal choice for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per person critically. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of data storage and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will offer the features your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at Cloud Web Solutions, offer an immense variety of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a basic account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Given web portals, particularly online stores, demand software applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not need root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that need server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally come with full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server accounts come with different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting account includes guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief spells of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete web server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
