This article about define web hosting and type of hosting methods. There are several factors when choosing a host for you to host a website. First you will need to decide the type of hosting.
• Shared Hosting – For this shared hosting plan your site will be place on a server with about 1000 other sites. Everyone will be given low restrictions on bandwidth and disk space (normally 5GB Disk space). These servers are usually managed, meaning you will get support from the hosting company. The servers are also usually locked down so that you will not be able to change server settings or install new applications without approval. This is a good choice for a first website or low traffic website that doesn’t need much customization.
• VPS (Virtual Private Server) Hosting: With this resolution you are still on a shared physical server, but you will have a dedicated virtual machine to use. You will also not be sharing with so many users and will even be able to have CPU cores dedicate to you only. This is an intermediate level of server. Virtual Private Server solutions are scalable in that you can increase resources easily. You will also find that you have the choice to use much more disk space and bandwidth.
• Dedicated Server: With a dedicated server you get just that. A physical server that is used only for you website. These solutions are great for sites with higher traffic levels. You will get the most flexibility with hardware configuration and will be able to do whatever your heat designer’s software wise. There are dedicated servers with support or without. In my opinion paying a little bit extra for managed support that will save you a few late nights is well worth the price. Get a dedicated server if you are serious about your website.
• Co-located Servers: Same as a dedicated server with one exception: you provide the hardware. You can ship your server to the hosting company and they will set it up in their data center. Usually you will also have options to have hardware support and/or managed support. If hardware fails it will be your responsibility unless you have a contract with the hosting provider allowing them to act in these situations. The big advantage to co-location is that you can save money and get the exact configuration that you want on your server.
