What is Web Hosting
In order for people to view your website via an internet browser, your site's files have to be uploaded to a server. The files can be uploaded via
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program. There are many different types of web hosting. Most basic websites will use a shared web hosting server, but here's a list of the different types
of web hosting:
- Shared Web Hosting:
Your website is placed on a server with many other websites. The site "sits" on its own partition or section on the server, to keep it separate from the other sites.
This is the most economical option for web hosting, as many people share the overall expense of server maintenance.
- Virtual Private Servers:
Divides server resources into virtual servers, where your website shares the physical server hardware with other sites but you are allocated a dedicated slice of the system resources.
This hosting plan is a good bridge between a shared hosting plan and a dedicated server plan.
- Dedicated Server:
You get your own web server and have full control over it. This is more for sites that use a lot of resources and it is a plan that is expensive. Small business owners with a basic site will not
need to purchase a dedicated server plan.
Cost of Web Hosting
Most small business websites will either use a shared hosting server or a virtual private server. The average cost is $5 to $10 a month. Larger sites that require more server resources will cost more per month.
