Hosting can be complex and there are a lot of options for web hosting. It is easy to get lost, so do not feel bad if you are confused at the starting point. Ultimately, it comes down to what a company needs now and what it plans to need tomorrow. Below we just dive into the differences between shared hosting and cloud hosting. These are two of the most common web hosting choices. Remember, there’s no right choice for everyone; the right type for you depends upon the needs of your site. Budgetary concerns are clearly important, but today’s organizations have more options than ever when allocating costs between capital and operating expenditures.
Shared hosting is the most popular and economic hosting solution that can suit the most hard budget. But using a shared hosting meaning the user has to share the server resources with the other users. Each user will get a shared amount of bandwidth and space. However, each user can also put an unlimited amount of sites on their account. So the server that’s being spilt up between multiple accounts can sometimes end up hosting thousands of sites!
Benefits Of Shared Hosting
- Shared hosting comes much cheaper compared to other hosting plan.
- The administration of the server is taken cared of by the hosting provider which means that you don’t need to concern yourself with technical issues of the server.
- You get to be provided along with a cPanel or other user-friendly application that are designed to make website management easy.
- You get multiple accounts at your own domain as well as the option to have more than one database.
Cloud hosting, or cloud VPS hosting, enables you to use the resources of multiple servers, rather than having your website confined to a single server location. So this means that all resources allocated at the time of creation of your server that become available, are for you alone to use.
Benefits Of Cloud Hosting
- Provide a security and stability because a software issue is isolated from and to your environment. Others’ cloud servers can not harm you and you can not harm others.
- Freedom to modify all the server software to your needs. This includes the OS kernel that’s not always the case with other virtualization solutions such as VPS.
- Cloud servers probably hold the good stability / cost ratio performance.
