Top Hosting

There are various kinds of hosting packages suitable for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared Hosting - Positive Aspects

The most proper alternative for small size web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per person significantly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will provide the specifications your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at W3Cloud, offer an extensive variety of hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-price account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a better account demands just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific web portals, mainly web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software programs that do not request root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that demand full server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it acts in an absolutely identical manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally include full root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages comprise diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web server hosting account has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spans of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is simpler to cope with as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Selecting...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the proper performance of a web site. Prior to settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
