Affordability is always the most important factor in consideration for customers all around the world. However, cheap cannot always be defined as the best solution. A wise consume is one who knows his requirements and pays only for things that meet his requirements. The same rule applies to website owners looking for affordable and cheap web hosting. There are hundreds of web hosts that you can find on the internet but not all of them provide the same level of web hosting services. Moreover, it is important for website owners to decide what type of web hosting is most suitable for them.
Dedicated, shared, VPS hosting are the different flavors of website hosting but the size and traffic of your website decides the type of web hosting that will suit you the most. Cheap web hosts will talk about cheap solutions but thatâs not all you need. You must know what you are getting in the package. How many web hosts will tell you the number of websites they are hosting on the same server? Since you will not be told about the number of websites on a server you canât rely on shared hosting as much as you can other formats of hosting.
However, this doesnât mean shared hosting is not for you at all. If you have a small business, the website you have started is new and doesnât have much traffic, the information that goes on your website is very little etc. shared hosting is just the solution for you. If you think your website is going to grow fast in the coming future then virtual private server is the best solution. It must be noted here that virtual private server hosting is a bit more expensive than shared hosting but offers much more to website owners in terms of security and performance.
Dedicated hosting is never suitable for small businesses. Security is another important thing that must be considered before you chose a website host. On a shared server security can be compromised. The performance of your website can also be compromised on a shared server since much of the sharing of resources on such servers is being done on first come first serve basis. The maximum bandwidth and RAM being offered are other things you must look into before finalizing your web host. Lastly, check the online reviews from customers and reviewing websites before you finalize a website hosting service.
