Which hosting plan is best for you?
Web (or Shared) Hosting is the most budget-friendly type of hosting. Since you’re sharing resources — like neighbors in an apartment building — you spend less but have fewer options and less control.
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) and Business Hosting dedicate specific portions of a web server’s capacity and processing to each customer. Like a condo, your space (on the server) is yours.
Dedicated Server Hosting — the mansion of hosting analogies — offers unlimited resources at a premium price. You can choose between full root access or managed plans. It’s all up to you.
What is hosting?
Websites are stored – or “hosted” – on a publicly-accessible computer (a server). Some websites require an entire server to themselves. Others can share a server with 100s of other websites. The storage space, and the features that come with it, make up your hosting plan.
