What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a remote server that is always connected to the internet storing all the files needs for your website.
Hosting is the provision of space, memory, and resources that will allow you to host a website for public viewing.
Hosting solutions come in four different types:
1. Shared Web Hosting
2. Virtual Private Server Hosting
3. Dedicated Server Hosting
4. Cloud Hosting.
Every one has its own purpose, and which one is the perfect fit for you depends mostly on your needs.
Shared Web Hosting is the most basic hosting solution, offering limited functionality and basic features at an affordable price.
Hosting on a Virtual Private Server offers the best balance between cost and features and offers the greatest value.
A dedicated server is the most powerful of all – it has no limitations as compared to a virtual server, and provides an abundance of resources.
A cloud hosting service consists of several world-wide servers that are interconnected. Virtual private servers, on the other hand, are hosted on physical servers.
