The Three Main Types of Hosting Used for Websites Are:
- Shared Web Hosting, where a large number of various client websites are all on the same server partition with their own space.
- Dedicated Web Hosting, where the entire server is leased and reserved for a single client’s website files.
- Virtual Private Server Hosting is a hybrid of the first two options where a website is hosted on its virtual server so that it won’t be affected by other customers’ websites.
Let us help you understand the many Web hosting types available from hundreds and hundreds of web companies competing for your business featuring packages that differ in bandwidth, GB, and DNS.
Shared Web Hosting
Pretty straight forward as the name, meaning your website is hosted on a server shared by other websites, and sharing the cost for that server with others giving you greater savings. The disadvantage is that you’re at the mercy of the multi-sites hosted on that server that could adversely affect your company site’s performance.
Business just starting a site usually start with a shared hosting account to minimize cost as they will not have a ton of traffic. *Godaddy, Bluehost, and others have popular shared hosting options. Price range from $5-$19 mo.
Cloud-Based Web Hosting
New hosting technology works like bringing multiple and even hundreds of Individual servers to work together as one giant server. This allows the hosting company to add hardware to enlarge the grid or cloud, making this an optimal option for websites needing major bandwidth and especially those websites with large traffic. *All grid packages are some pay peruse.
(VPS) Virtual Private Server
One physical server acts as multiple servers and provides you with an option between sharing and owning your own server. Giving you more power over resources and hardware than shared hosting. The range for a (VPS) from $50-$300
Dedicated Web Server
Considered by many as the highest level of a server, you would need to grow an online business presence. As you could imagine, a Dedicated server’s cost is considerably higher in cost than your shared or VPS servers. Starting above $100 and up. You should also consider hiring a system administrator if this is a skill you do not possess.
Managed WordPress Hosting
WordPress is one of the most popular web building platforms in the country, and you may desire to look into a managed WordPress hosting package. The hosting provider maintains these. Package cost is a little more than shared for that obvious reason.
