Why it is important?
Okay, now let’s start with, why you should give extra effort on choosing hosting. As we mentioned in our previous article, hosting is a special type of computer that contains your website’s data. So, in simple words, just like any other computer, if your hosting computer is not good, your website loading time will be high. And a slow website is bad for business.
What you should consider
Now, I will be as non-techy as possible here for your better understanding. So, for choosing the best one for your business. You have to consider three vital things.
Number one is Speed. Compare the speed of different hosting before you choose.
Number two is Security. As I said, it is a special computer with lots of hard drives. But it can get hacked. So, ensure what level of security the hosting provider maintains before choosing.
Finally, the third one is Service. Like any other device, the hosting system can be sometimes problematic. But, if you get a good support team, that won’t be an issue.
Types of Web Hosting
Now, we know what should look for in hosting before we choose one. So, let me explain the different types of hosting, and which one is best for you.
The first one is Shared Hosting. In here as the name implies, websites using shared hosting will be sharing resources with other websites on a singular server. Most cost-effective plans for entry-level websites.
Second, VPS Hosting. VPS stands for “virtual private server.” Here, the main server is split into multiple virtual servers. These virtual servers can be customized by individual websites. It is for websites that have outgrown shared hosting, and consider it an upgrade of shared hosting.
Third, WordPress Hosting as the name says, this hosting is optimized for WordPress sites. If you are using WordPress. This type of hosting is often called as Managed Hosting.
Fourth, Dedicated Hosting. This is the most expensive type of web hosting. But, since you won’t be sharing resources or anything else with other websites, your site will operate at peak performance. And, of course, it is for Enterprise-level large websites.
The fifth one is Cloud Hosting. It is the latest cutting edge technology. If I explain it in dumb words, then Cloud hosting plans come with multiple remote servers. Each server has different responsibilities. If one of the servers is compromised or has a problem, the other servers on the network will take over those responsibilities and pick up the slack, running the system smoothly. This is best for websites that are growing rapidly, such as e-commerce websites.
Finally, the sixth one is Reseller Hosting. In most cases, it is a Shared Hosting but with a middle man. Generally, software agencies, web developers, and web designers prefer these types of hosting services mainly for minimum space and low cost.
So, there you go. Now you know all about hosting from how to choose, what to look for, and what types of hosting are available there. If you like this please share it with your friends.
