Types of Web Hosting

Free hosting

If you have no budget at all, you can find free web hosts out there. Note, though, that they may offer limited resources, support only static websites, place unwanted ads on your website, and give little or no customer support. Generally, free hosting isn’t recommended except as a temporary solution.

Shared hosting

Shared hosting allows you to share bandwidth, disk space, and computing resources with other customers. This is the most popular type of web hosting, since it’s affordable, easy to use, and usually comes with all the features you need. Most of the small and medium websites online are using shared hosting.

Dedicated hosting

In dedicated hosting, you have a server all to yourself, so you will have more control and resources. However, you do need to have technical knowledge in order to manage your server. It’s also much more expensive than shared hosting.

VPS hosting

In VPS hosting, a web server is partitioned into multiple virtual private servers (VPS). Each virtual server runs its own operating systems, which means that it essentially acts like a separate machine. This provides more guaranteed resources and better performance than shared hosting—at a price that is less expensive than dedicated hosting.

Reseller hosting

A reseller hosting plan provides you with a specific amount of server resources, which you can then resell to other people. Try out reseller hosting if you want to earn income from web hosting, have enough technical knowledge, and are willing to provide customer support.

But what’s right type for me?

If you’re just starting out online, we would recommend a shared web hosting plan. It’s the most affordable: shared hosting starts at around $5 a month, whereas the next tier, VPS, starts at around $20. Shared hosting provides all the features and resources that a normal website needs. If you ever need more resources, you could always upgrade later on.
