There are several types of web hosting server. Here is a brief overview of the three most popular types:
The most popular option because it is very affordable. However, it is not made for everyone. The biggest disadvantage of this option is that you are at the mercy of all other users hosted on the same server as your website. And sometimes, there can be thousands of other websites on your side. This affects the loading speed of your site. The speed will not be constant and sometimes, at the busiest hours, your website could even experience breakdowns or a slow loading speed.Pros: Very affordable price (average of about $8-$10 per month)
Cons: Random loading speed and sometimes very slow. Possibility for breakdowns.
Virtual Private Server (VPS)
Private virtual servers share a physical server but act as if they were 100% independent. Even though each VPS instance shares hardware resources, a dedicated slice of computing resources is allocated to them. A VPS prevents your hosting neighbors from influencing the performance of your website, while avoiding the cost of a dedicated server.
Pros: Reasonable price for a constant and fast speed.
You have a dedicated server when you rent your own server from a hosting company. Average prices are around $100 a month. It is suggested to have your own server when you have a website that generates a lot of traffic. If you want to be sure that every visitor has a constant speed, this option is ideal. It also gives you more control (choice of operating system, hardware, etc.)Pros: ensures a very good performance for medium and large companies that generate a lot of traffic via their website.
Cons: Very expensive.
