Top Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the web hosting environment they require. To pick the most appropriate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Perks

The most adequate choice for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per person radically. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, offering different amounts of server space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the specs your web portal indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at iwebclouds Hosting, offer a large variety of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a cheaper account and you demand more features, moving to a better account involves only a click.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Certain sites, mainly web storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require complete root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that need complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly come with full server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans sport different specs depending on what the hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to tackle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a web site. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
