Tip of the month

Are you looking for a reliable web host for your website. There are different types of web hosting out there to choose from. The most popular types of web hosting available is known as “shared hosting”. A majority of websites today use shared hosting. Another type of hosting is hosting in the cloud. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Here is a quick rundown of what each is.

Shared Hosting

  • What is shared hosting?
    • The hosting company shares the resources of the hosting server with multiple websites
  • Advantages of Shared Hosting
    • Less Expensive
    • Easier to setup
  • Disadvantages of Shared Hosting
    • Not as secure
    • You don’t get SSH access
    • Slower page load times

Cloud Hosting

  • What is cloud hosting?
    • With cloud hosting you get your own server to host your 1 website
  • Advantages of Cloud Hosting
    • More Secure
    • Faster Page Load Times
  • Disadvantages of Cloud Hosting
    • More complex to setup – you need a server admin to set it up unless you understand this server technology or want to take time to learn about it
    • It costs more than shared hosting
