Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting accounts appropriate for different sites in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

The most relevant alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web host to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will include the specs your web page in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the online portal. We, at LIGHT Cloud Hosting, offer a wide array of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some websites, mainly web stores, demand applications to be installed on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that require full root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in precisely the same way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments typically come with complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include different features based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web server hosting account includes guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to run as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
