There are two
kinds of hosting services:
shared and dedicated.
Shared web hosting
is just that – several websites
are located on a single server. Since
it is split up among several website
owners, the price is cheaper than
dedicated hosting. The down side is
are limited in a shared hosting situation.
However, most small to medium size
businesses operate their websites
on a shared host effectively and efficiently.
If you anticipate a few thousand visitors
per day or less, shared hosting can
be a good choice for your website.
Dedicated web hosting
is exactly what it sounds like. One
server is used solely for the purpose
of hosting one website. If you plan
to have an extremely popular website,
this option will allow you to host
many more visitors than shared web
hosting. A dedicated web host is recommended
for websites that need high bandwidth
requirements or need high storage
capacity. Since you are not sharing
it with other websites, it all belongs
to you on a dedicated server.
While you are researching
potential hosting plans, there are
a few clues you can look for to determine
whether the host is shared or dedicated.
Many times the web host will actually
say whether it is shared or dedicated.
If it does not say, it is generally
shared. Just to make sure, look at
the price. If it’s cheaper than
$80 per month, it is generally a shared
web hosting plan.
