There are several types of web hosting. Various website traffic volumes need different types of hosting. The needs of a small site with few visitors will be drastically different from a larger site. Shared hosting shares resources with other sites, but is perfectly fine for many smaller sites. VPN hosting shares a server, but not resources with other sites. Dedicated hosting gives a site its own personal server and resources. Cloud hosting gives a website access to many servers hosting powers and resources.
- When deciding on a web host, consider what type of website you have and how much traffic you can expect.
- Shared hosting is best for small businesses because you will save money.
- On a virtual private server, you will be sharing space with other websites, but the number of them is limited.
