Quality Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To pick the most relevant web hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most proper alternative for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per user markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of disk space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will offer the specifications your site in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Canada Raidlayer, offer a vast assortment of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost plan and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account involves just a click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Specific web portals, mainly online stores, need applications to be present on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not need full server root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that request root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a strictly identical way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments usually offer server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts sport diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web hosting server package offers guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Prior To Choosing...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper functioning of a site. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
