Understanding web hosting and its types

Not every business that sets up a website succeeds. Many businesses fail because of poor website functionality and bad user experience. The usability of a website depends on three pillars – an interactive web design, search engine optimization and robust web hosting. You would need to have web hosting that will ensure that your website is visible to the people on the internet for the maximum time possible. Broadly, there are 3 types of web hosting:

1) Shared Hosting

In Shared Hosting, various websites are hosted on a physical server. The server resources like bandwidth and storage are logically distributed amongst all the websites. This hosting is available at a lower price as it provides a fixed amount of resources with minimum scope of scalability and flexibility. It is a preferred option for new businesses.

2)Dedicated Hosting

In Dedicated Hosting, all the server resources are dedicated to a single website. You are not sharing your space with another website, and you have all the resources to yourself, thus, enhancing your website security, flexibility, and performance. It is a good option if you need a lot of resources. Though it comes at a cost higher than other web hosting options, it will be worth the cost.

3) VPS Hosting

VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a hosting type that mimics a dedicated server environment within a shared server. It sits perfectly in between Shared Hosting and Dedicated Hosting because it costs less than Dedicated Hosting and provides better security, reliability, and resources than Shared Hosting.

After deciding on the web hosting type, choose a web hosting provider while considering the following things:

-Safe and stable server environment
-Reliable customer service
-Customizable pricing
