Hosting Plans Explanation

Hosting is a kind of online service that permits individuals and businesses to render their web portals visible online. Web hosting providers are firms that offer hard drive space on a server situated in a datacenter facility and guarantee constant Internet connection.

Where do you start?

The Internet has become an indispensable factor in everyone's everyday routine. It gives you the option to make extra profit, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to place ads on your web page or to publicize goods that you sell, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your web page is protected and constantly accessible. But how do you discover one that is inexpensive and yet reliable enough?

The solution hosting suppliers have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, many hosting account owners are accommodated on the same hosting server. There are rigorous limitations on the system resources that each user account can in fact use, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by only one single client. The shared solution permits hosting firms to offer their customers affordable prices. It ordinarily comes with user-friendly web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at W3Cloud provide, and allows everybody to manage their web pages without bothering about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are taken care of solely by the hosting corporation.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual web server hosting clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual web server solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who wishes to establish, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a community website. The fact that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be an enormous advantage if you indeed need to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or virtual server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-consuming web portal, or just has very specific web server architecture and safety requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your server admins can administer directly. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.
