Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are various kinds of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared web hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal shared web hosting service for your web site, you must calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most optimal choice for small web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per user considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of storage space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will have the resources your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at cloud7, offer an enormous choice of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low grade account and you need more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan demands only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Certain web portals, chiefly online stores, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software applications that do not request full root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services generally include complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages involve diverse features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting package contains guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to handle as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Before You Choose...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper performance of a website. Prior to settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the web page to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
