Quality Shared Hosting

There are various sorts of shared hosting services appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.

The most suitable alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per individual markedly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one provider to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a package that will offer the features your web page actually requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at MICloudWeb.com, offer a great collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low priced account and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Downsides

A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Specific sites, particularly online storefronts, request software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not request server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that request root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms commonly provide full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts include different features based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual hosting server plan contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spans of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
