Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different sorts of shared web hosting accounts suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate shared web hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be satisfied.

The most adequate alternative for small websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web space hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, offering different quotas of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will have the resources your website indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at viawebcloud, offer a great selection of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-end plan and you demand more resources, moving to a better package demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weak Sides

A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some sites, particularly web storefronts, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that demand root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions usually offer root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts include diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan contains guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief intervals of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced users.

Dedicated Servers

However, given web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
