Virtual Hosting

Share This Article:

Anyone requiring to host more than one domain name on a single computer will quite often use the option of virtual web hosting, sometimes on the same IP address. Virtual web hosting is one of the most popular options available for hosting at the moment. This is mainly due to it being one of the most reasonable forms of web hosting available in today’s market.




Virtual web site hosting is also known as shared web hosting and it allows the owner of a website to host his/her site on a web server that will be shared with other websites. In other words, the server of the virtual web site hosting company will allocate its services and bandwidth to more than one website. This makes the costs slightly cheaper than that of a dedicated server and thus an ideal solution for the small to medium sized website;, especially if they don’t experience heavy traffic on their site.




Many small-to-medium sized businesses opt for virtual servers for internal purposes, where there is a technological or administrative reason to keep several separate websites, such as customer extranet website, employee extranet, internal intranet or intranets for different departments. If no security concerns are present in the website architectures, they can be merged into one complete server using virtual hosting technology, which can reduce the management and administrative overheads and the number of individual servers required to support the business.




At CWCS we offer a range of packages to suit the budgets of small and large businesses at very competitive rates.
