Quality Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting services appropriate for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the most relevant web hosting service for your web site, you have to access what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

Shared website hosting - Good Points

The most optimal choice for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per user radically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of web storage and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain an account that will offer the features your web portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at iwebclouds Hosting, offer a huge collection of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful account demands only a click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Sides

A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given web pages, above all web shops, need software applications to be activated on the server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not require root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that require root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it acts in strictly the same way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services commonly come with full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts include different specs depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server web hosting account includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief stretches of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to run as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by trained clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they complete dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Prior To Deciding...

Selecting the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the stable work of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the online portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
