Selecting the Right Web Hosting for You

We all have heard of web hosting but do you know that there are many types of web hosting? Let’s take a look at them below:

Free Web Hosting:

This kind of hosting is supplied to you for free. This hosting is advised in case of low traffic sites for, e.g., your personal site, your individual blog, family websites, etc. It is not advisable, if you want to run a business website with high traffic.

Shared hosting is the most common type of hosting and also the most cost-efficient. In this type of hosting, you share the hosting on a specific server with perhaps 100 other users. You don’t get the devoted access of the server, but simply a percentage of it. For online business websites, this is the best possible choice. You should try and opt for a host with 24/7 technical support. Unlike in free web hosting, where the advertisements of your hosting company is all on your websites, you have the entire access to your websites. Along with it, you get a lot more space, bandwidth, other alternatives such as email, databases, and so on. That is the reason this service is advisable over the free hosting service if you wish to run your site for business purposes. It is truly economical, because you are sharing the price of the server with around 100 more individuals. The monthly rental for shared hosting from a reputed hosting company differs between $5-$20.

In shared hosting, you share a server with some more individuals, however, in this case you get the devoted access to the server. Dedicated hosting is the most costly kind of hosting. But, you get unlimited access to the server. That means an effective and safe server with nearly endless software alternatives. This hosting is advised for you in case you have an extremely high traffic site such as a social networking site, an online forum, etc.

Reseller Hosting:

This kind of hosting is needed if you want to become the web host yourself. You can resell this hosting further with your very own cost. Reseller hosting costs between $15 and $50 depending on the features and resource restrictions provided by your hosting supplier.

There are many other variations in hosting, and you can find many options by doing a simple online search.
