Quality Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting plans appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most adequate option for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person critically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, furnishing different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a package that will include the features your web portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at theclearhost, offer a big variety of web hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a basic account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific web pages, above all web shops, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software applications that do not need root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that demand server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally give complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages sport diverse specs depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server hosting account includes guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief spans of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to run as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given web hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Opting...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a web portal. Before settling on an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the web portal to operate properly, particularly if it is script-based.
