Quality Web Hosting

There are various kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.

The most appropriate option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per individual seriously. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get a package that will include the features your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot host the site. We, at Idca Hosting, offer a big collection of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a basic package and you need more features, moving to a high-end package involves just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Downsides

A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, especially web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not request root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that demand root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services typically give full root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Much like the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts have different functionalities based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be increased for short spells of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, some hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
