Web Hosting

There are various types/levels of web site hosting and using the physical world analogies hopefully this will allow you to understand what type of hosting you are looking for.

  • Multiple websites in one hosted account sharing everything.
  • Think of this as having a table/booth at a small market or store.
  • Perfect for start-ups and simple sites that don’t need much resources.
Little Shop Website (shared hosting)

 

  • Multiple hosted accounts in one server with their own resources separate from others.
  • Think of this as having your own little shop or store in a mall.
  • Your own webspace that can be set up almost any way you want.
Large Shop Website Pro (shared hosting)

 

  • Still shared with multiple hosted accounts, however fewer accounts giving better performance/resources.
  • Think of this as having your own department store in a mall with better facilities.
  • Great for large (or a couple of) websites with consistent traffic.
Virtual Server (or reseller)

 

  • Your own server space that can handle multiple hosted accounts and websites.
  • Think of this as having your own strip mall downtown.
  • Great for very large (or multiple) websites with consistent traffic.
Office Building Dedicated Server (or reseller)

 

  • Server hardware all to yourself!
  • Think of this as having your own multilevel office building or mall all to yourself.
  • Huge, very busy websites and/or custom applications (something beyond just a website) would need this.
